Benetfink & Co

Described themselves as ‘furnishing ironmongers’ and had large premises on Cheapside in London from 1845 to 1907. They sold a very large range of metalware items for the home and claimed in an advert in 1852 that they would furnish an eight-roomed house for £5.

They also sold optical lanterns, chandeliers and lamps and had a sports department offering bicycles and sports attire. By 1900 they were also selling Kerry and Enfield motorcycles as well motoring accessories such as headlights, jacks and motor watches.

They were taken over the the A.W. Gamage department store in 1907.
