ABBOTT BROTHERS

Southall, London


Image
Abbott Bros. - Southall - 1908

If I understand correctly, Abbott Brothers were primarily makers of bee-hives, and perhaps the marketing of the above spoon was originally for honey and a spin-off from their usual output, but that is guesswork only.

Abbott Bros., Beehive Manufacturers, 9, Merchant's Quay, –A comparatively new industry of increasing importance is the manufacture of improved beehives and appliances. Twenty years ago the bar frame hive was a scientific implement, costing about five pounds, and suitable only for the wealthy amateur. The founder of the above firm, Mr. C. N. Abbott, foreseeing the important position improved beekeeping was capable of taking in the industries of Great Britain, devoted the whole of his attention and considerable capital to its encouragement. He established 'The British Bee Journal' devoted solely to apiculture, and besides giving practical advice by post to all requiring it, made such important improvements in beehives and appliances that the name of Abbott soon became amongst beekeepers as a household word. At the same time, by manufacturing these appliances on a large scale and by improved machinery, he so lessened the cost of them that a hive superior in every way to the former expensive appliance can now be obtained for half a guinea, thus being within the reach of farmers, and even most labourers. That his efforts, and those of his sons who succeeded him, have been appreciated, is proved by the fact that during the last twelve years the firm have been awarded upwards of 800 prizes at the various shows at which they have exhibited their unrivalled productions. Their principal factory is at Southall, near London, with offices at Ludgate Arcade, London. Their latest success has been the establishment of the Dublin branch, which is a factory complete in every way, and largely employing Irish labour, and being under the experienced management of the founder's eldest son, it is turning out work of a class not previously seen in Ireland. Although so recently established, it already monopolises nearly the whole of the trade in its specialities, being the only factory in Ireland devoted exclusively to beehive making. Messrs. Abbott s illustrated catalogue is well worth perusal. Their manufactures were shown at the Olympia Exhibition, Stand 438.
