Jeweller and silversmith Carlo [Charles] Danieli was born in Italy (details are lacking) around 1790. He was recorded trading in Oxford Street in the 1841 census, age aged fifty-one, with his wife Sophia. His son Charles George was born in 1816 and christened at St Mary Marylebone in 1819. In the late 1830s Charles George Danieli tried his hand as a picture restorer, judging from his three promotional leaflets, in which he calls himself Carlo Giorgio Danieli. These leaflets were issued from no. 81 Newman Street and addressed to picture dealers. He restored pictures after the ‘Italian method’. When his father was subject to bankruptcy proceedings later in 1841 and imprisoned, young Charles George took on the jeweller’s business. In the year of his death, 1847, his name was replaced in directory listings by James Danieli, jeweller at no. 304 Oxford Street.
