Our research indicates that Alfred Cox & Sons* were high quality 'Surgical and Veterinary Instrument Makers and moved from 108 New Bond Street to 120 New Bond Street, London in circa 1902* at the beginning of the Twentieth century. They were present at this address until circa 1930 when they moved again to Duke Street. It could be that this table was owned by them and their mark was then applied after purchasing the table with one of their company metal plaques as a recognised piece of their furniture. It is not thought that the table is attributable to them. Their office at 120 New Bond Street for example is within 0.3 of a mile of Liberty & Co on Great Marlborough Street and could have been purchased locally from a number of artistic decorative furniture suppliers / designers.
Ready for continued and stylish decorative utility.
