SILVER ADVERTISING:
DERRY & JONES

Derry & Jones (late John Sheldon & Co) was active at 55, Great Hampton Street, Birmingham and 33 Bucklersbury, Cheapside, London.
According to another advertisement, the business was established in 1825 as John Sheldon & Co but little is known of this manufacturer of electroplated items "on purely refined nickel silver and Albata plate".
They advertised as inventors and sole manufacturers of the newly discovered patent Spanish Silver which is twenty per cent Whiter, Harder and More Silver-like than any substitute for Silver ever discovered.
The trade mark of the partnership of Frederick Derry and Henry Jones (c. 1861/1871) was a "D" overlapping a "J" inside a diamond shape.
