Property deaccession from the Strong Museum, Rochester, NY. August Pottier, an immigrant from France, and William P. Stymus Sr. opened the company in New York City in 1859. Their workshop was on 115 Wooster Street, and their salesroom was at 623 Broadway. The company grew quickly, and by 1871 the firm's factory occupied a full block on Lexington Avenue. By 1872, they employed 700 men and 50 women. Pottier & Stymus made furniture in the Neo-Greco, Renaissance Revival, Egyptian Revival, and Modern Gothic Styles. Three drawing published in Harper's New Monthly Magazine in November 1876 provide evidence that in addition to exclusive furniture for office buildings and rich clients, Pottier & Stymus also produced simpler and cheaper furniture. Some of Pottier & Stymus' work can be seen at the Brooklyn Museum.
