Fenton Brothers LTD
The Fenton Brothers LTD Company was founded in 1896, in Sheffield England. Not too long after its founding, the firm fused with John Wragg and Son, a local cutlery manufacturer. That year, the Fenton Brothers reconstituted their firm as a limited liability company under the name Fenton Brothers Ltd. By 1914, Fenton Brothers had established themselves as silversmiths of solid standing, and they were known as cutlers and electroplate producers. At their plant, they specialized in spoons and forks, butter dishes, biscuit caddies, bowls, fruit and tea services, trays, waiters, entrée dishes, liquor frames, and revolving tureens to name a few.
