The firm of Carrington was named after its founder John Bodman Carrington who established his manufacturing business at 130 Regent Street, and was listed as a silversmith, goldsmith and jeweller working from the London premises of the Birmingham silversmiths G.R.Collis & Co. The business was re-styled Carrington & Co in 1880 and the firm specialised in extra strong silver plate for use in restaurants, hotels and ships. By the early 1890s Carrington were advertising themselves as jewellers, diamond merchants, dealers in precious stones and manufacturing silversmiths. At this time the partners were John Carrington, William Carrington Smith and George Bruford. They were awarded the Royal Warrant by Queen Victoria and would go on to gain the warrants of Prince Albert, Edward VII and George V, as well as Nicholas I and II and Queen Alexandra of Russia. In 1893 they created the beautiful Dorset bow brooch for Queen Mary and in 1911 they set the famous Cullinan diamonds numbers III and IV into a brooch/ pendant for her, a jewel now owned by the Queen who affectionately refers to them as ‘Granny’s chips’. John Carrington became Prime Warden of the Goldsmiths’ Company in 1903 and retired from his business in 1906 leaving W.C. Smith to continue as sole remaining partner. Carrington co-authored a book ‘The Plate of the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths’ which was published shortly before his death in 1926. The firm was eventually bought out by the firm Collingwood.

HISTORY OF CJ VANDER: When in 1886, Cornelius Joshua Vanderpump registered his mark at the London Assay Office, he stepped into the pages of history. Having apprenticed with Martin Goldstein of Macrae and Goldstein, the young apprentice soon showed his skill and in 1886 Joshua acquired the business. He anglicized his name to Vander and the business flourished, numbering many of London’s leading retailers among its customer By 1904, when Joshua died, two of his sons – Henry and Alfred – had joined the business and registered their marks at Goldsmiths Hall. The firm expanded and moved and continued to prosper until the outbreak of World War I. In the post war years, sales again increased and the 1920’s and 30’s saw the business grow not only at home, but also in the USA where C.J. Vander built an impressive export business. Succeeding generations of the Vander family, too, continued to be involved in the company. In 1926, Alfred’s eldest son Norman joined from school and took charge of production. He was soon joined by his cousin Arthur. The gathering storm clouds of war once more appeared on the horizon and there were no silver linings. The company’s premises in Betterton Street were compulsorily purchased in 1938. Alfred died in 1939, and in 1941, enemy action led to the destruction of the greater part of C.J. Vander’s new premises in Fetter Lane. The few employees who had not been called up into the armed forces, were moved to a factory where their skills were used for producing aircraft parts. In the post-war years, rebuilding its business was made all the more difficult by the Government’s imposition of a punitive purchase tax which rose to a peak of 125 percent, decimating the U.K.’s traditional silver industry. Thanks to its existing export business, and the fact that it had become an established dealer in second-hand and antique silver, C.J. Vander was in a stronger position than many of its competitors. The Goldsmiths and Silversmiths Company (Garrards) asked C.J. Vander to produce hand-forged flatware from the dies of a unique range of patterns which had belonged to the defunct company, Francis Higgins. C.J. Vander took on some of Higgins’ former craftsmen, who passed on their skills, enabling the firm to keep alive one of the traditional crafts. Richard, Henry’s son, the brother of Arthur, joined in 1949. The Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953 gave fresh impetus to the silver market, and C.J. Vander enjoyed considerable success. In the late 50’s, the firm moved to its present premises in St. Cross Street. Meanwhile, members of the Vander family continued to join and run the business. In 1965, John Vander, Norman’s elder son joined the company. Three years later, Norman’s second son, Robert, followed in his brother’s footsteps and Anthony, Richard’s son, joined in 1981. Today, all the knowledge, skills, dies, patterns, and traditions which C.J. Vander has acquired over the many decades of its existence, culminate in the superbly crafted silverware, sought by discerning customers all over the world. In 1996, C.J. Vander was acquired by Syratech Corporation, owners of the leading silver brands in the USA. Richard and Anthony Vander continue to work in the business. Syratech Sold CJ Vander in 2003 to a management buyout group, and finally, after 120 years, CJ Vander closed their doors forever in 2007.

Yitzchak Bier graduated the Bezalel Academy of Art and in establishing the workshop was also establishing a new concept in Judaica Art. There were almost no Jewish silversmiths after the holocaust and there was a need to fill the demand for silver religious items at that time. Yitzchak Bier won a special prize for an extraordinary Chanukah Menorah which he designed. Thus was launched Bier Enterprises. Most Bier designs are original designs of Yitzchak Bier and always taken into account are beauty of form and comfort of use. While over the years many new lines and designs have come to be part of Bier’s repertoire many of the older classic designs remain bestsellers to this day. His sons Mordechai and Meir followed in their father’s footsteps and together ensure excellence and craftsmanship. Everything at Bier Judaica is handmade using different silversmithing techniques: metal cutting, bending, metal spinning, lost wax casting, hammering. The silversmith can create almost every design that is imaginable using these techniques, materials and his knowledge and skills. Bier classic designs make use of bible verses, original decorative lettering and ornaments related to Jewish customs and folklore.
