SILEDA Ltd.

Cefn-y-Bedd, Clwyd, North Wales


An example of the sponsor's mark of Sileda Ltd.:

Image
SL - Sheffield - 1985


Emma at the Sheffield Assay Office provided the following information:

Having had a good look through over 30 files who all used SL in their sponsor mark, I have formed the following conclusions:
........ I believe it is for Sileda, they had nine individual punches registered with us from 10th December 1980 to 2000. Some are incredibly small but their main mark is a rectangle with the clipped indent top and bottom of the rectangle between the SL.

MARK WILLIS & SON

Exchange Works, Rockingham Street, Sheffield

Mark Willis & Son - Sheffield - 1891

Established in 1874.

Last month, Messrs. Mark Willis and Son, silversmiths, Rockingham Street, Sheffield, took the whole of their workmen and employes to Chatsworth. The company numbered about 70, and had a pleasant drive in wagonettes. A substantial meat tea was served up at the Royal Hotel, Baslow, and during the after proceedings, advantage was taken of the occasion to present to Mr. William Willis, who recently attained his majority, an elaborate dressing case, with silver-mounted fittings, which' had been subscribed for by the workpeople. Mr. Willis suitably acknowledged the presentation, and the whole proceedings passed off in a very satisfactory manner. The marked and steady increase of business done by this enterprising firm with each succeeding year, is a just tribute to the quality of the goods they supply to their customers. We are pleased to see that, with increased prosperity, they are not forgetful of the actual producers, and have no doubt of having to chronicle further events of a similar pleasing character in connexion with this establishment.

Source: The Watchmaker, Jeweller and Silversmith - 1st July 1890



The works of Mr. Mark Willis in Rockingham Street have within the last few months undergone some rather extensive improvements. The increasing business of the firm has rendered it absolutely necessary to increase the warehouse accommodation, and this has been done by the addition of several rooms opening out of each other over the offices. The stone-ware, glass, and other goods, which it is necessary for silversmiths to stock in large quantities, are now systematically arranged in the new store-rooms, and the eye of the manager can detect at a glance which stocks require replenishing. In this part of the works also a new finishing-room has been opened out, and the cheerful aspect of the place, filled as it is with the smartest of burnishers, shows little signs of the depression in trade which is supposed to exist. Mr. Willis, in point of fact, has no complaint to make as to the state of trade, being fairly well employed in every branch. One evidence of this is that there appears to be nothing new in course of being got up in the workshops. The warehouse contains a large assortment of breakfast cruets, tea and coffee services, Crown Derby, Worcester, Wedgewood, and Doulton ware; cake-stands, bon-bons, fruit dishes, honey dishes, grapescissors of various descriptions and prices. These, with dinner cruet-frames of various patterns, combination toast and butter frames, afternoon tea sets and so forth, are all got up in a style that sufficiently accounts for the progress made by this house within the last few years. The accepted design for a football challenge cup, which I was shown, demonstrates that Mr. Willis does not confine his attention to the more utilitarian branches of the trade.
