About Smythson of Bond Street
Smythson also sells leather goods such as diaries, notebooks and small travel goods. To give you an idea of price, when I first visited in 2010, a travelcard wallet was £95 and a 'Gent's accessory box' was in the sale from £10,765 to £5,400 so you can see they cater for a wide range of budgets.
Following the refurbishment in 2012, the museum is much smaller but there are still some archive materials on display. Staff are really helpful and will do their best to point out other historical pieces around the store.
This is a museum about the company so has archive materials from 1887 onwards. Previously I've seen the founder Frank Smythson's original trade card, a selection of wartime Christmas cards, a Smythson notebook used by Sigmund Freud, and examples of fine stationery specially produced for the Maharajas of India during the 1920s. Look out for John F Kennedy's and Princess Grace of Monaco's condolence books.
