Maker
Charles Boyton & Son

Charles Boyton registered his first hallmark in 1825 as a spoonmaker with further marks registered in the 1830s and their range of production expanded immensely.

In 1849, the firm moved to Northampton Square and the name was changed to Charles Boyton & Son under Charles Boyton II. After his death in 1899, the firm continued under Charles Holman Boyton  who died in 1904.

The firm converted to a limited company in 1919 as Charles Boyton & Son Ltd.
