Established in South St. David Street, Edinburgh by Aitken Dott in 1842 as "Gilders, Framers, and Artists´ Colourmen", the firm, as it does today, also exhibited and sold work by the leading Scottish artists of the day. As all areas of the business grew, larger premises were found in Castle Street in 1860 and a new dedicated gallery space was opened in 1897 as "The Scottish Gallery". Following a move to George Street in 1982, we formed a specific department in 1986 for the promotion and sale of Contemporary Applied Art. Materials, framing and restoration departments were wound down and closed and we re-located in our present form to Dundas Street in 1993.
