Jennens & Betteridge were highly regarded for producing papier mâché wares. Acquiring the workshop of Henry Clay, ‘ Japanner’ to George II Iand the Prince of Wales in 1816. Their original premises being in Birmingham, they opened in London, Belgravia in 1835 and later established premises in Paris and New York.
