English term or phrase:chaney shop
It’s from Dickens’s “Martin Chuzzlewit”, on this site, for example:
'Why, he's own uncle to Capricorn,' said Bailey, 'and brother to Cauliflower. He's been through the winders of two chaney shops since we've had him, and was sold for killin' his missis. That's a horse, I hope?'
I have checked with other versions of the text that it’s not a misprint.
