Fattorini & Sons

Fattorini & Sons was founded by Antonio Fattorini (1797 – 1860), an Italian, who in 1829 was listed in Leeds as jeweller & hardware dealer at 18 Bazaar, Central Market.

In 1831, he set up a shop in Harrogate, Yorkshire, dubbed “Oriental Lounge” trading in jewellery and bric-a-brac. Later he moved to Bradford, taking a large building at 28 Kirkgate trading under the style “Fattorini & Sons”.

During and slightly beyond Antonio’s lifetime, the activity was advertised as “Fattorini & Sons, goldsmiths, Skipton, Harrogate and Bradford”. The branch of Skipton was opened in 1848 by Innocent Fattorini (1830-74), continuing the activity of his father-in-law Baldassarre Porri (another Italian, who began his activity in 1827). Much later, and when active in Birmingham, Fattorini Skipton branch referred to 1827 as its founding date. Harrogate was managed by Antonio II Fattorini (1837 – 1913) and Bradford by John (1832 – 1909) and Edward Fattorini (1844 – 1913).
