Walker & Hall silver coffee pot - England
this silver coffee pot (or hot-water jug) has wood handle and finial and was made in Sheffield - England in 1924 by silversmith Walker & Hall.
The firm was established in Sheffield (UK) in 1843 by George Walker.
Henry Hall joined the partnership in 1848 and the company was known as Walker & Hall in 1853.
The famous trademark of the flag was first registered in 1861. In 1892 Walker & Hall bought the manufacturing silversmiths, Henry Wilkinson & Company.
The firm was managed by Sir John Bingham, Hall's nephew, until 1916. He was succeeded by Sir Albert Bingham.
In 1963 Walker & Hall combined with Mappin & Webb and Elkington to form British Silverware Ltd., which closed down in 1971 due to industrial action. Walker & Hall was later revived as a retail firm.
Its hallmark is a triangular flag with W & H.
The coffee pot is 8 in. high (cm. 20) and was bought from an Italian dealer.
