Samuel Hume Jeweller and Silversmith
17 Elvet Bridge, Durham
I found 3 references for Samuel Hume in Durham trade directory PDF's:
Hume Samuel, 17 Elvet bridge, Durham jewellers
Hume Samuel, 17 Elvet bridge, Durham watch & clockmakers
Hume Samuel, watch maker, I7 Elvet bridge
Also the Index to obituaries in the "Durham Directory" 1910 has:
HUME, S., jeweller and silversmith of Elvet Bridge, Durham died 4 May 1909 (see M29/1)
"Hume, S." but of "North Road, Durham ", watchmmaker is referenced in our Forum by Dognose and below is the box silk that stimulated my "local" interest.
Apart from the death record there is little dating for Samuel Hume's working period. If the silver spoon and fork set that were in the silk lined box were always in the box, the item was retailed around 1898.
