We recently got this Edwin Blyde Electro-Plate catalogue. Today the Edwin Blyde Company makes pewter. The [URL=http://www.edwinblyde.co.uk/about-us][/URL] at the company's web site mentions its 130 year history but nothing about silver.
quote:
The Spur has been the Trademark of Edwin Blyde & Co. Ltd for some 130 years when one of the Blyde family joined the Company straight from a Cavalry Division of the British Army.

Blyde's history can be traced back as far as the 18th century when one of its main activities was the manufacture of Pewterware. Blyde's manufacturing started when steam power and belt driven motors were used, when candle and oil were the only means of light, through the torrid times of world wars. ........


The catalogue was undated so we sent off an inquiry.
quote:
Dear Sirs,

Would you be able to tell me the history of your Electro-Plate business? When did you stop making silver and silver plate?

Thanks.



And we received the following prompt reply:

sorry too many years ago to have any details

derek

It is very sad that the Edwin Blyde Company doesn't remember any details from their 130+ year history.
