Charles Nosotti
C.A. Nosotti 1829-1853, Charles Nosotti 1854-1885, at 398 Oxford Street 1839-1881 & 399 Oxford Street by 1846-1881.

Charles Andrew Nosotti (c.1800-1854) was born in, or near, Milan and was in business in London by 1822. In 1827 he married Amelia Ruenia Garbanati, daughter of Joseph Garbanati, another Italian carver and gilder in London. Initially he seems to have traded as Andrea Nosotti with Francis Nosotti, possibly his brother, as looking glass manufacturers, until the partnership of A. and F. Nosotti, also styled as A. Nosotti & Co, was dissolved in 1826.

Charles Andrew Nosotti advertised a sale of his surplus stock when he moved to Oxford St in 1838, including pier and chimney glasses in rich gilt frames, console and pier tables, cornices, picture frames etc. His new showroom was at 399 Oxford St, with his gilders' shop in adjoining premises round the corner in Great Chapel Street.

In 1866, Nosotti advertised his manufactory and ten showrooms as containing looking glasses, console tables, window cornices, girandole, picture frames etc, manufactured on the premises. By 1870, the business was listed as upholsterer, decorator, house and ornamental painters, by appointment carver and gilder to his late Majesty William IV and to His Imperial Majesty, Napoleon III. Charles Francis Nosotti was involved in bankruptcy proceedings in 1870 (London Gazette, 25 January 1870), and again, as Charles Nosotti, upholsterer, in 1890 (The Times, 13 August 1890 and London Gazette, 9 September 1890).

In the late 1850s the business was responsible for decorating the chapels of the London Oratory at Brompton. Nosotti supplied the frames for James Sant's Duc d'Aumalle Duchesse d'Aumallele, exhibited 1860.
