John Lias

A London silversmith firm whose origins go back to 1791, when John Lias began business as a buckle maker.

In 1818, he took as his partner his son, Henry Lias I, and they were joined from 1823 to 1837 by another son, Charles.

The Lias brothers were known for producing quality flatware. Henry Lias I and his son Henry Lias II were partners from 1850. In 1879, Henry Lias II formed a firm with James Wakely.

In 1884, the firm consisted of James Wakely and Frank Wheeler, becoming Wakely & Wheeler in 1909.

In 1957, the business was acquired by Padgett & Braham Ltd.
