Lot Essay

William Trotter supplied furnishings to some of his native Scotland's most important houses and institutions including: numerous apartments in the Palace of Holyroodhouse; Dumfries House; Mount Stuart and Edinburgh's Parliament House. Trotter worked with various partners in Princes Street until his death in 1833. The management of his shop continued under the title of 'Heirs of Wm Trotter' and later under the name of William's son, Charles, until it closed in 1852.
