John and William Vokins

19th-century picture framemakers and dealers in works of art

John Henry Vokins (1810/11-78) and William Vokins (1815-95) became a leading firm of art dealers in the 19th-century. They specialised in watercolours. The business had been begun by their father John Vokins (1788-1832). It was originally a carving and gilding business. The firm was later taken over by William Vokins' son James Theodore Vokins (1844-1910) and ceased trading after his death.
