- London print dealer. Unclear if linked with the dealer Edward Daniell (q.v.). Responsible for a catalogue of the engraved work of Richard Cosway. Closely linked with the BM, and a trusted agent alongside Colnaghi. Presented works to P&D in 1932 and 1935.
The firm was founded in 1827 and continued by the son, who died in 1932 at the age of 80 (see Hind in BMQ VII 1932-3, p.88). Originally F.B.Daniell, later F.B.Daniell and Sons. Another son was F.C. Daniell, who was running the shop by 1917. Called themselves in their letterhead 'dealers in fine old engravings'. Dealt in a wide range of works, including stipples, portraits, and books, arranged by subject; but the main business was in 18c & 19c British and French mezzotints, stipples, and colour prints.
According to Dudley Snelgrove, in later years the shop was managed by Hugh Tregaskis. The firm is thought to have closed in the 1970s.
