John Grinsell & Sons were a renowned British silversmith firm that operated from 1826 to 1937. Located in Birmingham, England, the company was recognised for producing exceptional silverware of the highest quality. John Grinsell & Sons were founded by John Grinsell, a talented silversmith who was later joined by his son, John William Grinsell, in the business. The firm’s work spanned from the Georgian era to the Edwardian era and beyond, and it was well known for its extensive range of silverware, including tea and coffee sets, candelabra, cutlery, and other ornamental pieces. The company was recognized for its exquisite craftsmanship and attention to detail, and its pieces are highly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts of antique silverware.
Art Deco was a style of visual arts, architecture, and product design that first appeared in France in the 1910s. It flourished in the United States and Europe during the 1920s to early 1930s. It was hugely prevalent through styling and design of the exterior and interior of anything from large structures to small objects and even influenced fashion and jewellery. Art Deco has influenced bridges, buildings, ships, ocean liners, trains, cars, trucks, buses, furniture, and everyday objects like radios and vacuum cleaners. It has become extremely popular today and is highly desirable to collectors and trendsetters in the fashion industry.
Sterling Silver is an alloy composed by weight of 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals, usually copper. The sterling silver standard has a minimum millesimal fineness (parts per thousand) of 925.
