Fortnum & Mason Store, London
Fortnum and Masons store at 181 Piccadilly was established in 1707 by William Fortnum & Hugh Mason.
Founded as a grocery store, Fortnum's reputation was built on supplying quality food, and saw rapid growth throughout the Victorian era stocking exotic, speciality and also 'basic' provisions to the Royal Household, the British Troops & Society events such as Henley Regatta and Ascot Races. The store claims to have invented the Scotch egg as a picnic food for travellers in 1738 and in 1886 were the first store to stock a new product by a H.J. Heinz - Baked Beans. Fortnum's is a luxury store famous for its decadent high teas, speciality hampers, its glamorous food hall and those stunning design-led window designs. Its products are all beautifully packaged and are sent around the globe as quintessentially English gifts. Fortnums is London's purveyor of Fine Foods to the Royal Family to this day and its beautifully packaged foods are a delight to buy and to gift.
Clare has created an artwork of the stunning store of Fortnum & Mason Store with its beautiful windows and the famous clock above its famous entrance. Outside the windows Fortnum's Shoppers, window gazers and London tourists can be spotted alongside the impeccably suited Fortnum's Doorman.
