Mellier & Co. was founded by Charles Mellier after working for the Anglo-French firm of Georges-Alphonse Monbro from his arrival in London through 1868 when he purchased the firm from Monbro. Mellier was renowned for his work with the most well-regarded interior designers and leading architects of his day, working with residences such as the Farmleigh House and Estate in Dublin, the Manderston, Berwickshire property of Sir James Miller and the Grosvenor Square residence of Henry Duveen in London. He was also commissioned to work on the trans-Atlantic ocean liner, Mauritania, built-in 1907 and he exhibit in the World Fair exposition of 1904 in St. Louis. By the end of the 19th century, Mellier & Co was recognized as one of the finest cabinet-making firms in England.
