Biography – Atkin Brothers manufactured a wide range of silver, electroplate, Britannia metal and silver and plate cutlery. The firm was originally started by Thomas Law, a Sheffield silversmith working c.1750-1775 and continued in the family until 1824 when Henry Atkin became a partner and the mark was entered for Jos. Law and Henry Atkin. In 1829 Henry Atkins and John Oxley took over the firm, Henry Atkins continuing alone from 1840 as Henry Atkin & Co. Henry died in 1853 and his sons Harry Wright Atkin and Frank Shaw Atkin continued as Atkin Brothers. In 1925 it became Atkin Brothers (Silversmiths) Ltd. It was purchased by Thomas Bradbury in c.1940 and by C>J Vander, London in 1958.
