AS title says. Just bought a lovely Arts & Crafts silver plate jug at a flea market with the marks Buchmann & Co Guernsey, EPNS on the base. Looking for information on the company.

Thanks

Roy

Hi Roy,

It would be great if you could post a nice sharp image of that mark for the website.

In the meantime, check out 'The Jewellers & Silversmiths Co.' at: viewtopic.php?f=38&t=15471

Hi Dognose,

here are a couple of photos and of course the original post should have read Bachmann & Co :)

Hi Roy,

Many thanks for that, I'll add them to the original topic soon.

The fact that they were at one time styled as Bachmann & Co. was unknown to me.

No problem Trev,

can't seem to find much info about production apart from they began in Guernsey in the mid 1890's. Fits with the Arts & Crafts style of the jug though.
