Founded in Sheffield, England by Jonathan Mappin in 1774, Mappin & Webb has grown into one of the world’s leading retailers of fine jewellery and silverware. Originally opened as a small silversmith workshop, Jonathan Mappin’s business quickly outstripped its humble origins. By 1858 when John Newton Mappin asked his brother-in-law, George Webb, to join him in the business, Mappin already had the reputation for producing some of the best quality silver in the country, including exquisite work such as the Victorian cutlery set with carved pearl handles and hand pierced and engraved blades above.
Today, the company combines its timeless craftsmanship with contemporary design to produce exquisite jewellery and elegant silverware, and is silversmith to Her Majesty the Queen and His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales. Estate Silver can be reached here.
