Daniel Cottier (1838-1891) had a varied training, including it is thought, some time in London, before joining Field & Allen in Edinburgh in 1862. There he built up the stained glass business as foreman designer, before opening his own studio, Cottier & Co., in 1864-65.

Cottier  was prolific in many fields of the arts including furniture design and art dealing, along with stained glass.  He spread his wings beyond Scotland opening offices in London, New York and Sydney, and is credited with introducing the Aesthetic Movement to America and Australia.
