Henry Poole & Co is a bespoke tailor located at Savile Row in London. The company made the first modern-style dinner jacket based on specifications that the Prince of Wales (later Edward VII) gave the company in the 1880s. The business opened first in Brunswick Square, in 1806, originally specializing in military tailoring, with particular merit at the time of the Battle of Waterloo. Their business moved to Savile Row in 1846,..

Jeanne Pereire, daughter of Isaac Pereire married Eduardo Philipson in 1881. He was an engineer from Florence Italy,

Émile Pereire (1800-1875) and his brother Isaac Pereire (1806– 1880) were major figures in the development of France's finance and infrastructure during the Second French Empire. The Pereire brothers challenged the dominance of the Rothschilds in continental European finance, known at the time as haute finance. Their attempt was temporarily successful, and even though it collapsed in the late 1860s, it contributed to a more developed and vibrant economic landscape. Like the Rothschilds, the Pereires were Jews, but unlike them, they were Sephardi of Portuguese origin.

Both were enthusiastic patrons of the arts and their hôtel particulier was hung with paintings by Ingres, Fragonard, Botticelli, Rembrandt and Vermeer.
