Peat, Saddler & Harness Maker, 173 Piccadilly, London held a Royal warrant & was mentioned in Dickens' 1879 directory. The Chancery Division of the High Court of Justice ordered the sale of the business and the leasehold on 16 July 1884 following a court case brought by Latchford - presumably over a debt to the loriner.
