I have never been convinced that such a person as George Hape actually existed. I note that this site attributes a GH mark to him but, in my opinion, this is almost certainly the mark of Harrison Brothers & Howson with GH being the initials of the company's principal, George Howson. Hape does not appear in the Sheffield Assay Office Register by B W Watson published in 1911 which is a fairly comprehensive list of Sheffield silversmiths. There is no George Hape listed in an 1893 Sheffield Trades Directory, nor in a 1919 one and I cannot find a George Hape listed with a silver or gold related occupation in the 1891, 1901 or 1911 censuses. Can anybody throw any light on this anomaly? Where is the original reference for this attribution?
