Smith, Cornelius V.
London wholesale cabinet maker, upholsterer and frame maker (fl.1885-1891)
By 1885 it was recorded with showrooms and an upholstery workshop in Marshall’s Yard, Henry Street, Hampstead Road and a frame making workshop in Charles Place, Drummond Street.  When the lease on the Marshall Yard workshop expired in 1886 he moved to larger premises at 64 Osnaburgh Street. London.

Smith advertised in The Furniture Gazette from  1 March 1886-1 March 1889, with some advertisements illustrated. One such article, published on 15 April 1891, described Smith as ‘the well known upholstering manufacturer and art furniture maker. He built up a reputation of which any man might be proud, and his business is one of the largest in the trade.

By 1891 Smith permanently employed over 150 at his works, which operated entirely on a wholesale basis. The census of that year described him as a widower and manufacturing upholsterer, aged 44, living at 18 Highbury Gove, Islington. He was still there in 1901 and died in Islington in 1917
