In 1847 Harrison Brothers & Howson took over managing the company which first registered its assay mark in 1808 at the Sheffield Assay office. Due to the high quality of craftsmanship, the company expanded from its humble beginnings in Norfolk Street to the Shoreham Street Works and a new factory in Carver Street. With continued success the London showrooms at Hatton Garden and Holborn were opened later moving to Argyle Street. Sadly, the firm later ceased trading but the brand of Harrison Brothers & Howson was revived in 1978 from its base in Clapham and continues to produce exceptional quality Sterling Silver items for the discerning purchaser.
