Lot Essay

The Birmingham firm of F.& C. Osler, established in 1807 by Thomas Osler was a principal manufacturer of light fittings and glass furniture, much of which was exported to the Indian sub-continent. A London showroom established the firm as a market leader, and it continued to be so throughout the century, with an international reputation for extremely high standards of quality and craftsmanship.
