The Rowley Gallery of Decorative Art was established in 1898 in Kensington, London by Albert & Emma Rowley, specialising in picture framing, mounting, restoration, carving and gilding. Albert was influenced and inspired by the Arts & Crafts movement and was great friends with Frank Brangwyn, it wasn't long before the gallery was producing veneer inlaid marquetry panels, pictures and furniture, commissionng artists to make the designs specifically for them. It is this work for which they are best known today by collectors of Arts & Crafts period furniture and decorative art.

The gallery business continues to this day, albeit in other ownership.
