GEORGE WARRIS

He entered a maker's mark of his initials in an oval shape at Sheffield Assay Office in 1885 from 32 Howard Street.
The 1901 UK Census recorded him aged 73 years as a silversmith living at 40 Crescent Road, Ecclesall Brierlow.
His death in 1906 was recorded in the Ecclesall Brierlow register.

Shaw & Fisher - Sheffield - 1880

Another old-established concern in the Britannia-metal and electro-plate trade is in the market. The firm of Shaw and Fisher, in Suffolk-road, has scarcely seen its 60th birthday, but in the course of a few weeks it will be brought to the hammer " in two lots." The first comprises the buildings, and the second the "good-will," trade mark, registered designs, &c. There has been neither Shaw nor Fisher in the concern for many a year. The late head of the firm was Mr. C. Hall, whose death was noticed in these notes last year. Mr. Hall's son has decided not to continue the business, hence the sale. For some time past the business has been offered for sale as a going concern, but in these times such intangible things as good-will do not bring very much in the market. A rumour got abroad in the town that Messrs. John Round and Son were about to purchase, but the only foundation for this somewhat unlikely story appears to have been the fact that Mr. Ridge and Mr. Sawson paid a visit to the works by invitation. The works and business will be offered for sale at the auction rooms of Messrs. Nicholson, Greaves and Barber, early in June.

LEVESLEY BROTHERS

Central Works, West Street, and later, Mary Street, Sheffield

Image
Levesley Brothers - Sheffield - 1870

Levesley Brothers (Charles, William, and Thomas Levesley) registered at the Sheffield Assay Office in 1863, and at the London Assay Office in 1893.

By 1883, they were noted as moving to Mary Street, Sheffield, the factory still known as the Central Works. Following that date, the business was styled Levesley Brothers & Lloyd (Thomas Levesley and William Lloyd). Following William Lloyd's retirement in 1893, the firm reverted to its former name. The last owner of the firm was Leonard Walter Levesley, who went bankrupt in 1929, which is presumabley when the business closed.

Levesley Brothers were noted as exhibitors at the Jewellers' Exhibition in 1913.
