Alexander Ritchie & George & John Morgan

Postby dartsil » Sun Sep 18, 2022 7:57 am

Hello all,

I am wondering as I can find nothing at all out there, is there any connection at all between Alexander Ritchie and George & John Morgan.

These napkin rings shown below are all hallmarked from Glasgow between 1926 and 1941, two of them also marked Celtic Art, very much in the style of Ritchie's work, does anyone know if there were connections between Ritchie and the Morgan's?

All I have managed to find on the net, was reference to a letter opener that Ritchie made but the one that sold at auction had Glasgow 1927 marks on it with the Morgan marks.

Not seeing it on the link given?

Also you say after WWII, these are mostly before then.

I know the last link as these were also mine and the link takes me to my own site.

I am trying to establish a connection with the Morgan's and Ritchie whilst Ritchie's was still alive if there indeed was any connection,

Seems strange that these would appear to very much Ritchie's style of work but another sponsor is on them.

I may be looking for something that is not there, complete coincidence that these carry the Morgan's mark at a date when Ritchie was still active.
