Lot Essay

The firm of Messrs. Aaron Jennens & T. H. Bettridge (fl. 1815-1864) were reputed for their manufacture of highly skilled papier-mâché wares. Jennens and Bettridge, originally based in Birmingham, took over Henry Clay's workshops in 1816. They set up a London shop at 3 West Halkin Street, Belgravia in 1837 and opened offices in Paris and New York two years later.
