THOMAS PICKFORD

178, Upper Street, Islington, London


Mr. Thomas Pickford, of 178, Upper-street, Islington, jeweller, was summoned before Mr. Barker by the Commissioners of Inland Revenue, for having unlawfully sold a gold chain, weighing 2 oz. or 12 dwts., on the 11th of August, he only holding a licence to deal in gold plate under 2 oz.

The representative of the Board stated that the prosecution was based upon the interpretation of the 5th section of the Act, that goods
sold for gold or silver were to be deemed to be so.

Mr. Powell, on behalf of the Inland Revenue Office, appeared for the prosecution, and called an officer who had purchased the chain, to prove that the chain was over 2 oz.

Mr. John Layton, who appeared for the defendant, said that his client contended that he was permitted by the 30th and 31st Vict., cap. 90, sec. 1, to sell any articles which contained less than 2 oz. of gold by virtue of his licence, and that the Act meant pure gold, and not a mixture of gold and base metals. He referred the magistrate to a recent decision in a similar case, which was heard before the Louth magistrates in August last, and called Mr. Wells, from Messrs. Buller and Hutchinson, of Bartlett's-buildings, the makers of the chain, and Mr. Marshman, of Clerkenwell-green, a working jeweller, to prove that there was not 2 oz. of gold in the chain. Both witnesses deposed to its being an 18-carat chain, and that it contained 1 oz. 19 dwt. of pure gold and 13 dwt. of alloy, not gold, and that the price charged (£14) was fair and reasonable.

The magistrate said that he was of opinion that the defendant had not infringed his licence, and dismissed the summons.
