MARKS - HALLMARKS - HISTORY

The firm was founded in 1848 by Edward James Pairpoint. The original address was 44 Whitcomb Street, Leicester Square but the firm soon moved to 16 Litchfield Street and later to 44 Greek Street.
In 1856 Edward James Pairpoint entered into partnership with George Wood and the firm was renamed Pairpoint & Wood.
The partnership was dissolved in 1850 and E.J. Pairpoint continued the business alone until the closure for bankrupt in 1879.
The firm was then taken by John and Frank Pairpoint trading as Pairpoint Brothers. The address was 57 King Street, Soho Square, moving to 47 Rupert Street, Haymarket and 80A Dean Street, Soho. Anyway, in 1898 the firm was under the control of the four sons of E.J Pairpoint: Edward John (b. 1848), William Henry (b. 1850), Alfred James (b.1852) and Francis William (b. 1859c.).
In an 1898 book written by John Henry Cardwell the firm is quoted: ...'Pairpoint copies of ancient patterns are dangerously near being indistinguishable from the originals, whilst their new manufactures carry one back to the days when the master silversmiths employed the first artists of the day to assist them in their productions "devised in love and fashioned cunningly." The firm is principally known to the trade as manufacturers of large and important works, such as centre pieces, presentation vases, and the like. To the amateur of antique silver and Sheffield plate, whether he be in Europe or America, the name of Pairpoint is a household word, and the quantity of antique plate and "Old Sheffield" that has passed through the hands of the firm since the renaissance of 1874 is little short of fabulous...'
In 1904 the firm was under the control of Alfred James Pairpoint (d. 1937), Francis William Pairpoint (d. 1945) and Arthur Walter Pairpoint.
Probably after 1937 the business moved to Phoenix House, 19 Oxford Street.
