Silver jug, electroplated silver, Wilkinson & Sons, 1874-1932 Wilkinson & Sons

£8.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

This is a simple and elegant electroplated silver jug, with maker's information stamped on the bottom. It is quite severely tarnished but would look super with some TLC. It probably dates between 1874 and 1932.
Thomas Wilkinson & Co were founded in 1832. They moved to a new factory, called the Pelican Works, in Birmingham in 1868. The name was changed to Wilkinson & Sons when the founder, Thomas Wilkinson, died and his sons took over, followed in turn by their sons, making this a truly family business. The firm took on the pelican symbol that can be seen on this item to reflect their factory name, and in fact a pelican can still be seen on the building today (45-46 Great Hampton Street, Birmingham). The business specialised in electroplated silver and were one of the first to establish this expertise. The business remained at this premise they were sold to A. L. Davenport in 1932.
