MARKS - HALLMARKS - HISTORY

Charles Boardman started producing sterling silver wares (1844) but converted to electroplating in 1847 prior to enter in partnership with A.O. Glossop. Boardman & Glossop was active at 54 Pond St., Sheffield (1861-1871). The firm became Boardman, Glossop & Co in 1887 and was converted in 1895 into a limited liability company under the style Boardman, Glossop & Co Ltd (partners were William P. and Frederick P. Davis).
They were described as silversmiths, electroplaters and Britannia metal-smiths at Clarence Works, Sheffield and 16 Ely Place, Holborn, London (later at 18 Bartlett's Building, Holborn).
The business was bought in 1924 c. by Frank Cobb & Co.
The firm traded actively with Australia and participated to the 1881 Melbourne Exhibition.
A two handled silver plate cup was the prize to the winner (J. C. Fitzgerald) of the Senior Sculls at the Warrnambool Regatta held in Victoria, Australia on 15th February 1890.

SILVER PLATE MARKS

The Boardman & Glossop silver plate cup won by J. C. Fitzgerald in 1890 for the Senior Sculls at the Warrnambool Regatta in Victoria, Australia. The cup is 15.5cms high and 10cms wide from handle to handle. The only damage is to what looks like an oar, being held by the figure on top of the cup. What would be the oar's blade had been broken.
The handles are emblazoned with a most expressive bearded man's visage.
The cup was presented to J. C. Fitzgerald for winning the Senior Sculls on the 15th February 1890 at the Warrnambool Regatta. The inscription recites the cup was presented by "╦. Tilley" and that the winner was of the Footscray Club (Footscray being a suburb of Melbourne situated on the Maribyrnong River).
Warrnambool is a seaside city 365 Kilometres East of Melbourne. Now a centre for several small industries and for holidays but in the mid to late 19th century a bustling port and entry to the gold fields of Victoria and export port for the wool and produce of Western Victoria.
In the late 19th century and early 20th sculling and bike riding were dominant sports in Australia and both were professional. J. C. Fitzgerald was well known and a champion in both sports.
