MARKS - HALLMARKS - HISTORY

Adey Bellamy Savory (member of a family of Huguenot origin) established his business in 1812 at 14 Cornhill, City.
Until 1833 he was variously listed as goldsmith (1812), dealer in foreign coins (1815) and spoons and forks manufacturer (1831).
In 1833 his sons, Joseph Savory (Sr) and Albert Savory, entered in the business and the firm changed its name to A.B. Savory & Sons.
Their silver manufactory (gold and silver, jewellery, electro and Sheffield plate, watches and clocks) was at 5 Finsbury Place South. Meanwhile they continued to operate as dealers at various addresses in Cornhill.
In 1866 A.B. Savory & Sons was converted into a limited liability company and changed the name to Goldsmiths' Alliance Ltd. They operated in the new factory at 18 Red Lion Street, Clerkenwell.
In 1893 the firm went voluntarily out of business and the activity was incorporated by the Goldsmiths & Silversmiths Co Ltd.
Besides silverware produced in its own workshop, Goldsmiths' Alliance traded pieces made by other manufacturer silversmiths. Its wide assortment of silver, Sheffield plate, electroplate, watches, clocks, gold chains, brooches, etc. was advertised in newspapers and periodicals and illustrated in price-lists sent in any part of the British dominions.
Goldsmiths' Alliance Ltd had agents in Bombay, Madras, Calcutta, Ceylon, Sydney, Adelaide, Hobart and Melbourne.
Between 1855 and 1865 the firm used the mark of its manager William Smily and from 1865 to 1879 that of Samuel Smily.
