He lived in Frizinghall and Thornbury in Bradford. They also had premises in Hatton Gardens, London. They were Diamond merchants, Goldsmiths and Jewellers, and were supplied by many leading silversmiths, including Sampson Mordan, Lias & Co, WG Sissons, Martin Hall & Co, Wakely & Wheeler, Robert Harper & Sons, and Horace Woodward & co. (Source is Culme, London Goldsmiths 1838-1914). The hallmarks are all clear. Whilst the spoons are clearly a set, they were hallmarked over a 4 year period, between 1895 and 1899 (most are 1899).
