Dates of existence



Guthrie & Wells, designers and decorators, Glasgow, began as J & W Guthrie, decorators, furniture dealers and makers of stained glass. In the 1890s this was the most prestigious firm of its kind in the city, and commissioned furniture designs from C R Mackintosh, among others. In partnership with Andrew Wells, the firm of J & W Guthrie & Andrew Wells Ltd was formed, and this remained its official title until the early 1960s, when it moved from the city centre to Lawmoor Street and adopted the style of Guthrie & Wells. Guthrie & Wells Ltd was incorporated as a private limited company in 1981 and dissolved in June 2002.
