This prestigious firm of manufacturing silversmiths was originally established by William Comyns in c. 1859 when he purchased the business of Robert Tagg, an outworker of Rundell, Bridge & Co.
William Comyns, silversmith, subsequently moved to 1 Percy Mews, Rathbone Place, then to 16 Silver Street, Golden Square, Soho, and to Beak Street, Regent Street. Additional premises were taken from c. 1903 at 54 Marshall Street, Soho.
The firm became William Comyns & Son in c. 1885 when sons Charles and Richard were admitted to the partnership. William Comyns died in January 1916. The business became William Comyn & Sons Ltd in 1930, with R.H. Comyns as permanent governing director.
In 1953, the company was purchased by Bernard Copping and is now one of the few surviving manufacturing silversmiths in London, with premises at Comyns House, Tower Street, London, WC2.
