Maker: James Dixon
James Dixon, Sheffield silver maker, founded this family business in 1806 which became one of the major British manufacturers of Silver and Silver Plated wares during the 19th century. A world leader in manufacturing shooting accessories throughout the nineteenth century they exported powder flasks in large quantities to America. They were also known as whistle makers. Their registered trade mark since 1879 was a Trumpet with a Banner hanging from it. The firm exhibited at the Great Exhibition in 1851, being awarded several prizes in different classes for silver and silver plate. Dixon's costing book of 1879 includes designs by Christopher Dresser, registered from 1880, and these were produced until at least 1885, according to the trade catalogue issued in that year. In 1920 the firm became a limited liability company and in 1930 they acquired the Sheffield firm of William Hutton & Sons Ltd. In the 1980s the firm had a financial collapse and the production in Cornish Place closed in 1992.
