A friend gave me this old catalog from 1960 from the David S Shure and Co. Inside is stapled a copy of a note that was written by the unnamed author to a friend named Corinne. The note is a request for Corinne to buy a pair of candelabra from the Shure Company, but it also highlights the fun and thoughts she had in ordering these candelabra.

I hope she brought the fluted ones and that they went well with her “cloth”.

This really takes one back to the days of the typewriter; that many people today have never used.

Does anyone know if the Shure Co still is in business?

Specialising in silverware from the Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian periods, as well as good 20th century design, David Shure have been dealing from the world famous London Silver Vaults since 1953. In 2007, when the original family owners decided to retire, the firm was taken over by I.Franks, the largest dealer in the Silver Vaults. Since then, the shop has gone from strength to strength in the charming and capable hands of manager Barry Carroll and today is renowned for superb customer service and an unrivalled stock of top quality silver.
