* The jewellery manufacturers Ernst Mürrle and J.B Bennett operated as Siegele & Bennett from 1884 advertising themselves as 'manufacturers and importers of British and Foreign jewellery'; importing pieces from Pforsheim as this was Murrle's origin. In 1896 they administered Murrle Bennet & Co until 1914 when the firm was purchased and continued trade in London under the name White Redgrove & Whyte. Murrle Bennett is widely known for their production of Art Nouveau and Arts and Crafts style jewellery; they bear connections with renowned craftsmen such as Liberty & Co, Archibald Knox and Theodore Fahrner.
