Sauce boats 1902

Postby fripou » Mon Jun 18, 2018 8:21 am

Hello
I received as a gift these marvellous sauce boats (10cm / 4" long ; 5,5cm / 2 1/4" high ; 4cm / 1 5/4" wide)


The little label said Birmingham 1902 which seems accurate

And made by John Hawkins ; is that correct ?
Can you tell me more about him, how reputed he is, if they still exist, etc....?

Thank you for all info you can share.

Cheers
François

I have attributed this mark to "Joseph Hawkins (probably)" in the hope that somebody will either provide a better name or confirm my guess. My feeling is that Joseph Hawkins may be wrong as he was described as a "chain and locket maker" at 59 Albion Street, Birmingham when he registered a mark at the Chester Assay Office in 1885 (it may just be a different Joseph Hawkins of course).

I have no further information on Joseph Hawkins.

Thank you !

Checking on the internet, I found that Joseph Hawkins makes "Card case, mustard, napkin ring, pepperette, salt, sovereign case, vesta "
So he may well be the maker of these boats

You were very helpful
Thanks

That would have been my web site you were looking at so my reservations about the maker's identity still apply.
