Wm. Lottimer & Co.
Wm. Lottimer & Co., Mantle Manufacturers, 15?, Queen Street.—
The energy and enterprise which are so eminently characteristic of the business men of the city of Glasgow are nowhere more apparent than in the extensive establishment of Messrs. Lottimer & Co. A firm of such old standing and extensive connection's deserve special prominence in any industrial review of the city.
The business was established over fourteen years ago, and is acknowledged to be the oldest house in the city exclusively devoted to mantle manufacturing. It has been continuously carried on in the present premises, which comprise two large floors utilised as workrooms, warehouse, and showrooms, together with a spacious suite of well-appointed offices and counting-house, and all the accessories of a large and well-organised establishment. A great amount of work is done outside as well as on the premises.
The firm employ many first-class artists in the cutting and designing departments, and are in close connection with the leading Parisian and London houses, and thereby enabled to produce the newest styles as soon as they appear. The very large and valuable stock is replete with items of interest, and comprises mantles in every variety of material and style, and of the best workmanship.
The business, which is entirely wholesale, is of a very widespread and influential character, and these extensive connections are well founded upon the eminent reputation the firm has so long enjoyed. Mr. William Lottimer, who is the sole proprietor, is a gentleman possessing the advantage of long, thorough, practical experience, and exercises that sound judgment and well-directed energy in the management of his business which has always been so eminently characteristic of his mercantile career.
