The A. H. Davenport & Co. (1875-1910)

The A.H. Davenport & Co. had its primary business in Boston, but also maintained a branch office in New York City. Davenport was closely associated with many of the leading architectural design firms of the day, including H. H. Richardson and McKim, Mead & White, and was one of the few American firms able to supply the quantity of luxury furniture and interior decorations needed for the sumptuous public and commercial buildings of the late 19th century.
