JOHN C.B. CRADDOCK

489, Sauchiehall Street, and 21, Argyle Arcade, Glasgow, and 132, George Street, Edinburgh


Image



John C. B. Craddock, Manufacturing Jet Jeweller and Fan Maker, 489, Sauchiehall Street.–

One of the most attractive and interesting establishments in Sauchiehall Street is that of Mr. John C. B. Craddock, jet jeweller to the Court and manufacturer of fans. This notable and thoroughly representative house dates its foundation from the year 1873, when it was originated at its present address by Mr. Craddock, and from its first inception it has held an eminent and distinguished position in relation to the superior department of trade enterprise it so well represents.

The premises comprise a main shop of handsome frontage and appearance, with a salon in the rear. The principal shop is utilised chiefly as a showroom and saleroom for Whitby jet jewellery and ornaments. In this department Mr. Craddock is one of our foremost manufacturers, and the only one chosen by the executive to represent the manufacture of jet jewellery in the Glasgow Exhibition, where the making of the various ornaments and trinkets usually produced in jet will be carried on, with a view to illustrating in a becoming manner one of the most interesting phases of the jeweller’s craft. In jet goods of various kinds Mr. Craddock holds a large and eminently attractive stock.

The elegantly appointed salon opening out of the main shop is devoted entirely to the second department of the business, that of fashionable novelties and generalities in fans. The display here is unsurpassed in Scotland in any point of rich variety and exceptional value. The ostrich feather fans cannot be obtained in equal value and real intrinsic worth at any other establishment in Glasgow. The house specialises a magnificent range of seasonable novelties in fans of divers and various kinds, among which are some of exquisite beauty in hand-painted satin and lace, ostrich and swan feathers, silk gauze, real Brussels lace, hand-painted gauze, and crepe de cheine and lace (hand painted), with productions of the highest order of artistic elegance and fine finish in many other dainty materials. The white ostrich feather fans shown here are a revelation, and Mr. Craddock’s special designs–the “New Princess”, the “Lyre”, and the “Victoria” – it would indeed be difficult to excel in originality of design and perfection of manufacture. Pans, in short, are the special feature of this house. Mr. Craddock has facilities enabling him to make a fan to order in twenty-four hours, and he devotes particular attention to the production of fans to order to match a lady’s dress, or any part thereof, his success in this delicate class of work being quite remarkable.

The business is conducted with marked ability and judgment, and Mr. Craddock numbers his clientele among all the nobility and gentry of Scotland. It should be mentioned that branch establishments of this house are conducted at 21, Argyle Arcade, Glasgow, and 132, George Street, Edinburgh.

DEATH OF A GLASGOW JEWELLER

MR JOHN C.B. CRADDOCK

The death occurred at his residence in Beaumont Gate, Glasgow, on Sunday, of Mr John C.B. Craddock, jeweller and fan manufacturer, who for many years occupied premises in the Argyle Arcade in the city. Mr Craddock had been in failing health for some time, and about 18 months ago lost the sight of both eyes. He was in his 82nd year. A native of Sowerby Grange, Yorkshire, he came to Glasgow in 1872, setting up business at Charing Cross as a Whitby jet jeweller and fan manufacturer.

Mr Craddock was a keen Volunteer, being first of all with the Lanarkshire Volunteers and later with the Glasgow Yeomanry. He attended the famous "Wet Review" at Edinburgh in 1881, but was unable to attend the jubilee celebration last year on account of his failing health. Before coming to Glasgow to live, which he did about 10 years ago, Mr Craddock resided for a considerable time in Bearsden, and while there one of his chief interests lay in the activities of the Parish Church, to which he belonged. He was a man who was respected and esteemed by all who came in contact with him, whether in connection with business or in social life.

Mr Craddock is survived by a daughter and three sons, one of whom is carrying on the business in Glasgow.

ATHOLL HILL

SCOT'S WORK IN ZURICH EXHIBITION

London, Thursday - The work of a young Scottish silversmith and designer, Atholl Hill, forms part of a display of British gold plate, silverware, and jewellery which will be shown by the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths at the British Exhibition in Zurich from September 2-14. The display was seen in a press preview at the Goldsmith's Hall this morning.

Mr. Hill's contribution is a handsome, tall-standing cup and cover in silver designed on bold engineering lines for the Goldsmith's own modern plate collection.

Other plate in this, the largest display ever to be taken abroad, includes a bowl by Gerald Benney given to Churchill College, Cambridge, by its first master, Sir John Cockcroft, and the mace of the new Sussex University, made of ivory and silver gilt.

Among the new jewellery on show in Zurich will be some of the prize-winning pieces in the de Beers £10,000 competition for modern British jewellery held in 1961, together with pieces strongly influenced by archaeological finds of prehistoric jewellery, and others that seem to owe their inspiration to lumps of lava.


Source: The Glasgow Herald - 23rd August 1963

Atholl Hill studied at the Glasgow School of Art, he was the designer and maker of the mace, presented in 1965, to the University of Glasgow.

WILLIAM KIRK

16, East Claremont Street, Edinburgh

QUEEN'S GIFT TO CHURCH NEARS COMPLETION

By David Douglas

The silver communion cup which is being presented by the Queen to the Canongate Kirk (the Kirk of Holyroodhouse) in Edinburgh is nearing completion now in the workshop of Mr William Kirk, the young Edinburgh silversmith whom Her Majesty commissioned to fashion the gift.

It will be handed over by the Very Rev.Dr. Charles L. Warr, Dean of the Thistle and Chapel Royal, at a reception on St. Andrew's night, November 30, and will be dedicated on the following Sunday by the Rev.Dr. Neville Davidson, Glasgow Cathedral, Moderator-Designate of the General Assembly Church of Scotland.

Mr. Kirk, working in an attic workshop in his own home at 16, East Claremont Street, Edinburgh, has had as his model the church's two existing early-seventeenth-century communion cups, but his design differs in ornamentation from the floral tracery of the originals. The royal arms in the Scottish quarterings appear on the bowl, and the arms of the Canongate Kirk and its minister, the Rev.Dr. Ronald Selby Wright, are on the base.

CHURCH'S ORIGIN

The cup bears symbols of the origin of the church as the Abbey of Holyrood - the plain cross of the Holy Rude, the lily of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Crown of All Saints, and a Celtic cross as representing the Church of Scotland.

The rim carries the inscription, "Gifted to the Canongate Kirk (the Kirk of Holyroodhouse) by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. 1961." which is continued on the base in the words "To mark the occasion of the semi-jubilee of the minister of the Canongate and Edinburgh Castle."

Mr. Kirk, who is an elder in the Canongate Kirk, is also making a silver communion cup for St. Margaret's Chapel at Edinburgh, and has just been given the baptismal fort from the Gladsmuir Church to make good damage caused by an accidental fall. He became a silversmith in his own account only last May, after 10 years with a leading Edinburgh firm of silversmiths and goldsmiths.


Source: The Glasgow Herald - 22nd November 1961


William Kirk was born in 1933, he served his apprenticeship under the Edinburgh silversmiths, Charles Creswick. He registered his mark 'W·K' contained within an oblong punch, in February 1951 with the Edinburgh Assay Office whilst still an apprentice. He founded his business, as a silversmith and engraver in 1961, his work features in the collections of institutions such as Edinburgh University, the National Museums of Scotland and Aberdeen Art Gallery & Museum. William Kirk also worked as a tutor in silversmithing for both the Glasgow School of Art and the Edinburgh College of Art.

William Kirk died on the 4th October 2009. A retrospective exhibition of his work, William Kirk: Towards Perfection was held on the 5th to 29th January 2011 at the Scottish Gallery, Edinburgh.

WILLIAM JAMESON

Edinburgh

RECOGNITION FOR SCOTTISH CROWN JEWELLER

By Robert Ross

The man who for the last 30 years has looked after the honours of Scotland - Crown Sceptre and Sword of State - has himself been honoured with the presentation of the British Empire Medal.

William Jameson (60) who describes himself as a "working jeweller" is the official cleaner of the Scottish regalia - a job he carried out in Edinburgh Castle where the jewels are normally on display. The cleaning exercise takes about two days and there is a magic ingrediant in the process - soapy water. "At the end of the day there is nothing better." Mr Jameson said.

He does admit, however, to using the occasional touch of cyanide, along with whitening, ammonia and jeweller's rouge. The piece that gives him the most concern is the 400-year old Sword of State which is in a delicate condition. It now only comes out of its case for the installation of Knights of Thistle and when it does Mr Jameson is usually in attendance nearby.

Cleaning the jewels is "just another job" which does not bother him until the night after - "once they are safely back in the case."

Cleaning the regalia is only an occasional job, however. Most of the time Mr Jameson is kept busy as a jeweller to the trade, doing repair work and commissions for some of the big retail shops in Edinburgh. He works from a cluttered room in the city centre where a motto above his head reads: "If golf interferes with business, then give up business." It is a present from his wife after a weekend in Blackpool.

Some detail of the flag that was carried by the Goldsmiths and Watchmakers of Glasgow during the 'Grand Reform and Coronation Procession' that took place at Glasgow on Thursday 8th September 1831:

Goldsmiths and Watchmakers. Flag–Crimson ground–design, British Lion trampling on a Reptile, emblematical of corruption–motto, " Goldsmiths and Watchmakers, the Artist Hammermen of Glasgow." Union Jack–Blue with a white ground–design, a Thistle–motto, "God save the King," and "Reform." Two Skeleton Time Pieces. One of the body of Watchmakers wore the Medal worn by the President of the Glasgow Parliamentary and Burgh Reform Society of 1792; besides a variety of Plate carried by the body of Goldsmiths.

This body attracted much attention, both from the respectability of their appearance, and the richness of the plate which was exhibited. A beautiful crown was carried by one of them, which for its workmanship was much admired.

JOHN LUKE II

Glasgow

John Luke Jun., of Glasgow

The sale at Christie's of 11 lots of silver plate belonging to the trustees of the late Mr Thomas Maxwell, Cottage-field, Irvine, served to bring into prominence a skilled Glasgow silversmith of the early eighteenth century - namely, John Luke Jun. A tankard, with slightly doomed cover, surmounted by a baluster, having scroll handle with a fluted thumb piece and short spout, has engraved on the barrel "The Gift of the Partners of the Woollen Manufactorie, Glasgow, to Thomas Thomson, Manager." Weighing 29 oz. and measuring 7½ in. in height, it fetched £107 8s., equal to 73s. per ounce. The date letter "B" is said to indicate the year 1717 or thereabouts. A large rat-tailed gravy spoon by Robert Luke, of Glasgow, circa 1725, 7 oz. 7 dwt., brought 34s. per ounce, a total of £12 9s. 11d.


Source: The Glasgow Herald - 15th December 1923

John Luke II was apprenticed to James Stiring of Ballagane. John Luke II is thought to have taken John Falconer as apprentice in c.1705.

John Luke II's marks include 'IL' contained within a heart shaped punch, 'I·L' contained within a shield, and 'I·L' contained within an irregular shaped punch.

FIRE IN GLASGOW JEWELLER'S PREMISES

An outbreak of fire caused by a spark falling down a disused chimney occurred last night in the premises of James M'Menamin Ltd., wholesale jewellers, 23, St Enoch Square, Glasgow. The outbreak, which was subdued in a comparatively short time by the use of one line of hose, appeared to be trifling in extent, but the loss amounted to several thousand pounds, due to the valuable nature of the goods involved. Some damage by water was caused in the baker's premises below the flat in which the fire originated.

There were also present Mr. John Miller, C.A., trustee ; Mr. Daniel Hill, of Messrs. D. and J. Hill, writers, agent in the sequestration ; and Mr. Wm. Kidd, writer, for the bankrupts. Mr. Teplitzky produced a state of affairs, showing liabilities £1,454 9s. 9d. and assets £80 6s. 9d. He said he commenced business four years ago with a capital of £20. He assumed Mr. Shapera as a partner eighteen months ago, and he had a capital of £550, represented by book debts and stock. Owing to the furnacemen's strike the miners had to come out also, and the firm could not get payment from either. That was the only reason he had to give for the deficiency. The examination closed.
