Re: ROTTON, John (Grimwade p.647)

There was a John Lury who was a Cutler and a contemporary of John Rotton. I take it that Lakesley, Lury and Makin were commissioners in this instance.

Re: Art deco Candle sticks mark help

Otto Reichardt was born in Germany in 1875. In the 1890's he was a chaser. He was in the umbrella handle business prior to 1907 and beyond. He died in 1962. A family member puts his year of death at 1962. I cannot account for the years the trademark shown in the preceding images was used.
