Maker: William Hutton
William Hutton, manufacturing silversmiths and platers, established in Birmingham in 1800, transferred to Sheffield in 1832. After Hutton's death the business continued under his son William Carr Hutton and his youngest son Herbert Hutton (senior, born 1843) as William Hutton & Son. William Carr Hutton died in 1865 and c. 1870 Herbert Hutton Sr. was joined by his brothers James Edward Hutton (b. 1839) and Robert (b. 1840) and the name changed to William Hutton & Sons. Their first London showroom opened in 1863, they acquired Rupert Favell & Co the London manufacturing silversmiths, and the firm became William Hutton & Sons Ltd. In 1902 they acquired Creswick & Co in 1902 and used their CROSS ARROWS mark. The firm also used the trade mark ANGLE PLATE The company closed in 1930 when it was absorbed by James Dixon & Sons Ltd.
