William Trotter (1772 - 1833)

The most prominent and successful Cabinet Maker in Scotland, his extensive premises were described in Thomas Dibdin's 'Tour in the North Countries of England and Scotland', quoting, in part 'The locality of this great...warehouse is rather singular. It is on the ground floor, lighted by a skylight, of great length and vistas, filled with Mahogany and Rosewood objects of temptation of all styles, including the modern form'.
