Company History:

G.W. Scott and Sons of 144 Charing Cross Road, London, began fitting tea sets and lunchware in elegant baskets in early the 1900’s. They were designed for elegant dining while motoring and described as “teas and luncheon cases for motoring.” It was a time when there were no regular roadside stops. One took their nourishment with them to dine in style. G.W. Scott & Sons was founded in 1661 and closed in 1967. They were famous for inventing the picnic basket in 1851, making frames for the bearskins for the Brigade of Guards and beautiful silver baskets for Buckingham Palace.
