Anatolio Giacinto Henin, born in Paris on June 3, 1831, takes over the father's workshop in 1865 and maintains the good production level of his father Luigi. He proceeds to reconstitute the punch with his initials AH and to register the company in his own name. The factory in via Soncino Merati 13 is still active today, at the address in piazza Borromeo 10.

Wow! Thank you so so much for this information, that’s incredibly kind. Do you know if it is solid silver or silver plated

Thank you very much. I absolutely love the knife, fork & spoon hallmark. It does say on top of the canteen that it’s from Pre-Unification of Italy but I wasn’t sure if the pieces were original to its canteen

It is a present to John Sutton, from Leeds (U.K.) who was director of the
Stabilimento Filatura Canapa alla Canonica, just a few Km from my home town.
Here an article translated by google

Canonica spinning plant
A group of nobles and wealthy bourgeois from Bologna, including the former minister Marco Minghetti, the count Zucchini, the banker Raffaele Rizzoli, gathered in the Società Anonima Bolognese, promotes the construction of a large and modern factory for the spinning of hemp near Casalecchio di Reno, in Canonica, incorporating industrial buildings once used as a paper mill and oil refinery.

Before starting the plant, the manager visits various types of spinning mills in Europe, noting the superiority of the English machines over the French ones. He then installs English plants on the Rhine canal, with the technical advice of British factory leaders.

The Casalecchio spinning mill can be considered emblematic of the industrial development line carried out in Bologna in recent years, of that type of "natural industry", based on raw materials produced on site, which many economic operators have been advocating for some time.

In 1857 the factory will count about 150 workers, of whom about fifty boys between 13 and 15 years old, engaged for 13 hours a day. In 1861 almost half of the 300 employees will be women. At the end of the century the Canonica canapificio will have over 500 workers and will be among the first in Italy in terms of size, machinery and financial resources.

It will be equipped with new machines and innovative procedures and will be gradually expanded, especially after its acquisition in 1906 by the Linificio e Canapificio Nazionale.

Your knowledge and research is incredible Amena. Thank you so much for helping me with this information. I bought this on eBay a few months ago after it was listed a few times with no takers
