Contemporary Chester trade directories show that only about six people were recorded as working as both upholsterers and cabinet makers in Chester at this period. One such firm, Brown and Lamont took over Gardners, an old established firm of cabinet makers and upholsterers, who were working in the Crypt Building in Eastgate Street, in 1862. Brown and Lamont are represented in collection at the Grosvenor Museum, Chester and they supplied furniture to Eaton Hall, Cheshire.
