Elkington is one of the most important silversmiths of the 19th and 20th centuries. The firm was founded by brothers George Richards Elkington and Henry Elkington in 1836. Based in Birmingham, the brothers experimented with gilding and electroplating techniques. By 1840 production of silver electroplated pieces was underway and was extremely successful in this venture. In 1885 Elkington registered designs by Christopher Dresser, these pieces in particular sell exceptionally well at auction and command high prices.
