Antique 19thc William Hutton Arts & Crafts Close Silver Plate Bowl / Dish, C1890:
Arts and Crafts was an international design movement that flourished between 1880 and 1910, continuing its influence until the 1930s. It developed first and most fully in the British Isles, but spread to Europe and North America. It stood for traditional craftsmanship using simple forms and often applied medieval, romantic or folk styles of decoration.
The business was established in 1800 by William Hutton. On the 19th November, 1807, he registered this mark (as above) at the Sheffield Assay Office which was used by the firm for over a hundred years on close plated steel articles. After his death the business was continued with this same mark by his son William Carr Hutton, when the name was changed to William Hutton & Son. This was a partnership of William Carr Hutton and his eldest son Herbert Hutton (senior). William Carr Hutton died in 1865 and c. 1870 Herbert Hutton Sr. was joined by his brothers Robert and James Edward Hutton. In 1893 the firm became William Hutton & Sons Ltd having acquired Rupert Favell & Co. The firm acquired Creswick & Co in 1902, beginning to use their crossed arrows marks. The firm was absorbed by James Dixon & Sons in 1930.
