MARKS - HALLMARKS - HISTORY

George Jamieson was the son of William Jamieson, an Aberdeen silversmith.
He completed his apprenticeship in 1841 succeeding to his father who died in the same year and in 1862 he participated as exhibitor to the 1862 International Exhibition (presenting in the section Works in Precious Metals, and their imitations and Jewellery: granite and pebble ornaments) .
Jamieson acted also as retailer of silverware manufactured by Hayne & Cater of London and often his mark (GJ) accompanies their "SH over DC" mark.
In 1875 his son William George Jamieson was admitted into the Aberdeen Hammermen and entered in partnership with his father (but the mark WGJ accompanies that of his father in a London 1872 hallmark: see below) under the style George Jamieson & Son (since 1848 the firm was active at 73 Union Street, Aberdeen and from 1867 at 107, Union Street). The firm was maker of "Granite ornaments and Scotch Jewellery, Crest Brooches, Highlands Ornaments and agent for Elkington & Co."
In 1881 William Whyte Carry entered in the partnership, becoming sole proprietor in 1908.
In 1925 the firm moved its activity to 142 Union Street and in 1933 changed its name to Jamieson & Carry (Joseph Robert Carry, son of William, was made partner).
Joseph Carry's wife, Diana, and his son, Michael Robert Carry, became partners in the business in 1969 and another son, Peter David Carry, became a partner in 1976.
In 1987 the partners were M R Carry & P D Carry, joined by Christopher M Carry in 1998.
In 2003 the partners were M R Carry, P D Carry, C M Carry and Philip Robert Carry
The firm claims as its founder Alexander Forbes, silversmith in 1733 at "The Head of Broad Street" in Aberdeen. In present days the firm is still active at 142 Union Street, Aberdeen.
Part of the early production of George Jamieson isn't hallmarked in an Assay Office and is categorised as "Provincial silver", bearing only unofficial town mark (ABN) and maker's mark (GJ). Hallmarks were entered in London Assay Office (GJ: 1848 and WGJ: date unknown) and Edinburgh Assay Office (GJ: 1848 - WGJ: 1875 - J&C and W.W.C: 1912).
