The Art Journal Illustrated Catalogue of 1851 in describing Hunt and Roskell stated that 'Without disparagement to any other house in London, in a similar branch of business, it may be said that Messrs. Hunt and Roskell have no rival…and a visit to their show-rooms is like inspecting a museum of Art.' Bibliography: Culme, J.
