Henry Milward & Sons (now known as ENTACO) is a British manufacturer of sewing needles.
The earliest reference to the Milward family in connection with needle making is a James Milward, who was a needle maker on Fish Hill in 1676.
Symon Milward created the company of Henry Milward & Sons aka Milward's Needles (Milward's) in 1730 at the age of 40, in Redditch, UK. It was however, his son Henry who takes credit for the foundation of the company as the company was registered in his name during the first year of his birth.[see Redditch Museum Family tree]
From the first half of the 18th century, the name of Henry Milward and Sons became well known as the makers of good quality needles.
At one point they were the largest manufacturer of its type in the world, producingknitting needles, surgical needles and fishing tackle,from a number of factories both in the UK and globally, such as Murcia, Spain.

This beautiful hinged box is a little beat up but could have lots of great uses, and would look much improved with just some furniture crayon touchup and oiling.
