Greatly appreciate the extensive listings you posted. I just purchased a Ben Cox umbrella in Brighton and thought you might like to see the handle photo but I don't know how to post it here. It is a full Ivory handle with an Oriental family carving wrapping around. The silk says 'NYLFRANCE FMF CYON' all around the edges. Am I correct to presume it was made prior to 1913 as the stamp on the Malacca shaft slide doesn't mention 'sons' and only says 'London Ben Cox'? Anything you can think of about this item is much appreciated!

Cheers!

Hall & Fitzgerald - London - 1927

The business of William Sydney Hall and Henry Edgar Fitzgerald registered their mark 'H & F' contained within an oblong punch, with the London Assay Office on the 18th October 1899. They also registered a mark 'H & F' contained within an oblong punch with clipped corners, at the Chester Assay Office on the 31st October 1901.

By 1914, Henry Edgar Fitzgerald appears to have left the business and was replaced by Edward Thurston Davies. The business still continued to trade under its original name. A further mark 'H & F' contained within an oblong punch was entered with the Chester Assay Office on the 23rd July 1914.

The firm also registered marks with the Birmingham Assay Office in 1904.

A.C. HARRISON & Co.Ltd. formerly William Dangerfield & Co

Bliss Mills, Chalford, Nr Stroud, Gloucestershire

Established in 1840 by William Dangerfield, it was to become one of the largest and most successful stick-manufacturers in the country and at one time employed as many as 1,000 workers.
