Faxardo was assay master of Cadiz city. The full name is ANTONIO FAXARDO. Appears in my books between 1745 and 1800.

The silversmith was Gvillin.

Faxardo and Gvillin is old Spanish language. Today would be called FAJARDO AND GUILLIN or GUILLEN.

SILVER PLATED WARE IN SPAIN

Consul R. M. Bartleman, of Valencia, Spain, is authority for the statement that there is a large demand in that country for plain and fancy tableware. There is only one important factory in Spain, he says, which turns out this class of goods. It is that of Don Emilio Meneses, at Madrid, founded in 1840, and which supplies the greater part of the national wants.

American silver and plated goods are superior in finish to the Spanish, and it is the opinion of the consul that after making due allowances for freight and tariff, our manufacturers could compete to advantage with the domestic producers.

GUILLERMO CODA

San Manuel E1, Mahon, Minorca


Image
G. Coda - Mahon - 1918


During the year 1917 there was introduced in the principal markets of the world, and especially in South America and the island of Cuba, a large number of new models of gold and silver mesh bags and purses, very attractive in appearance and of very fine mesh. These novelties received much attention because of their originality in design and perfect finish. The makers state that the buyers of these goods expressed themselves as highly satisfied with them and that numerous letters to this effect have been addressed to the factory.

Image

Among the qualities that have contributed to create the reputation which these gold and silver mesh bags enjoy are the strength and durability of their mesh. made and soldered entirely by hand, making then far superior to mesh goods made by machinery, which easily become loose and turn, owing to the weakness of mechanical soldering.

In order to guarantee the excellent quality of their goods, and that imitations may be easily detected, the manufacturer protects them with his registered trade mark "Coda." The Coda factory, which was established in the year 1900, has been compelled to largely increase its plant in order to satisfy the demands for its goods. In addition to its numerous novelties in the line of bags, to which a new design is added every day, it also carries
an extensive assortment of cuff links in nine, fifteen and eighteen karat gold, as well as in rolled gold and silver; also an extensive variety of novelties in gold and silver soft collar plus, with genuine and imitation stones; gold and silver cigarette cases and match cases, besides a great variety of other goods in gold and silver.

The accompanying illustrations show some recent creations in gold bags and links. All of these goods are sold with or without cases, as may be desired.

Image

This concern has a well-equipped export department, with all the necessary facilities for making shipments to every part of the world by the cheapest and quickest routes, all goods being carefully packed and insured against all risks, including war risks. Its various representatives are constantly travelling with great success throughout South America, having with them the most complete and varied assortment of samples ever seen in that part of the world.

In order to attend to the ever increasing demand for their products, the firm has recently purchased ground where a large building will be erected for the installation of new offices and workshops, the latter provided with all modern improvements.

Image

The firm conducts its correspondence in English, French and Spanish, and catalogues and price lists showing its novelties will be sent free to any importer or merchant asking for them. Correspondence should be addressed to G. Coda, Jewelry and silver goods manufacturer, Mahon, Balearic Islands, Spain.

CHAIN MESH BAGS FROM MINORCA

As an instance of how an old industry transforms itself to meet the changing needs of the modern consumer, might be cited the firm of Guillermo Coda, situated at Mahon, which is the capital of Minorca, an island in the Balearic group off the eastern coast of Spain. It is on this little island that the making of chain mesh bags first began. The industry dates back to the ages of chivalry, when the knighthood throughout Europe highly prized the steel chain mail which was then made with great labor by the Spaniards inhabiting Minorca. Since then, however, the circumstances of this trade have changed enormously. The firm of Coda, for instance, which is carrying on this traditional occupation of Minorca, now makes chatelain vanity bags in place of braconnières, and the clumsy solleret, which was produced with excessive pains and slowness, has vanished before such things as the engine-turned gold cigarette case. Indeed, along with the introduction of the most modern designs in its platinum, gold and silver work, the company has revolutionized the method of production as well, everything now being done with the most up-to-date types of equipment. This firm now has more than 600 operators engaged in the manufacture of this line of commodities, comprising metallurgical experts, machine engineers and technical directors, besides a large staff of designing artists; its present catalogue lists more than 1,000 different designs of mesh bags.

Image

The Coda concern has a well-equipped export department with all the necessary facilities for making shipments to every part of the world by the cheapest and quickest routes. Goods are carefully packed and insured against all risks. Its representatives constantly are travelling throughout South America, showing one of the most complete and varied assortments of samples ever seen in that part of the world.

Image

Though the most modern machinery and equipment is used in their manufacture, it is claimed that neither quality of workmanship nor beauty of design is sacrificed in the production of “Coda” products. Close examination of the gold cigarette case and chain mesh bag illustrated on this page would seem to justify that claim.

JUAN GOMILA RIUDAVETS

SILVER MESH BAGS

Silver mesh bags and purses are now very extensively used, not only as a fancy article but also on account of their great convenience for ladies and gentlemen. For this reason the attention of merchants is directed to the products if the firm of Juan Gomila Riudavets. One of the purses made by this concern is shown in the accompanying engraving. These bags and purses are highly appreciated, owing to their solid, elegant and careful manufacture, making them highly artistic pieces of jewelry. They are produced in many different styles, such as Louis XIV, Louis XV, Pompadour, Imperial, Gothic and Modern, thus satisfying the taste of every buyer.

Image

For many years Mr. J. Gomila Riudavets has devoted his entire energy and capital to the improvement of his silver bags and purses, and his efforts have been rewarded not only with the medals and honorable mention that his products have obtained at numerous expositions where shown, but also with the steady increase in the demand, so that at present the production of his factory exceeds 60,000 bags and purses per year. The general demand for export to various countries has compelled Mr. Riudavets to prepare the silver alloy for the manufacture of his goods in different grades to comply with the law of each country; for instance, for Spain and France at 800 mm.; for England and United States 935 mm., etc., so that these products are now sold very extensively in the principal markets of Germany, Belgium, Spain, France, Holland, England, Switzerland, Austria-Hungary, and the republics of North, Central, and South America where the artistic work of these goods is highly appreciated.

Inquiries and orders are invited from established merchants or responsible commission houses, to whom special prices and terms are given, allowing them to resell the goods with large profit in their own market. All correspondence on the subject should be addressed to Juan Gomila Riudavets, Mahon, Balearic Islands, Spain.
