About the maker;
The family firm was reportedly founded in 1810 by Joseph Mappin, and their sun trademark was granted in 1835 by the Cutlers’ Company. They were not known as Mappin Brothers until after 1852 when all four of Joseph Mappin’s sons had joined the company, after his death.
Mappin Brothers continued under Edward and Joseph Charles Mappin and acquired central London showrooms in 1856 and 1861, on King William Street at London Bridge, and Regent Street.
