    In 1835, Miller and Sons were registered as 'Spermaceti-refiners, Wax Chandlers, and Oil-merchants' with premises at 179 Piccadilly and 51 Old Compton Street. This may have been the wax chandler, George Miller, noted in 1824 as going into partnership with his son. Miller & Sons remained at this location until 1907. A similar table lamp was sold at Christie's South Kensington, 18 September 2007, lot 29.
