AC Silver are pleased to offer a fine range of antique and vintage silver pieces by Walker & Hall.
The origins of Walker & Hall begin with John Harrison, a metal worker who, in 1843, took out the first licence in Sheffield to make electroplated pieces.
John Harrison then employed George Walker to learn the art of electroplating, however two years later, instead of working for Harrison, Walker decided to begin his own company instead.
George Walker first established Walker & Hall in 1845, and in 1853 the business was joined by Henry Hall, and thus the company became Walker & Hall.
Although the company began in Sheffield, they were truly an international business. Branches were opened in Liverpool, Edinburgh, Newcastle, Manchester, Leeds, Glasgow, Cardiff, Belfast, Hull, Bristol, Melbourne and Adelaide (Australia), Cape Town (South Africa)- meaning that some of their items bear the Birmingham, London and Chester Assay Marks.
Walker & Hall became a limited liability company in 1920 under the name Walker & Hall Ltd, and joined Mappin & Webb and Elkington & Co. in 1963 under the British Silverware Ltd.
