Walker & Hall was formed in 1845 by George Walker. Operating from Sheffield, Walker was an established silversmith who also conducted experiments on electroplating and secured the royalty of electroplating for Sheffield. In 1853, Walker was joined by Henry Hall, becoming Walker & Hall. Walker & Hall famously have their maker's mark, a W&H either within a flag or a convex rectangle to denote their pieces. The firm were primarily Sheffield makers so most items bear the Sheffield crown assay mark, and rose for pieces after 1973, but pieces can also be found assayed from Birmingham, Chester and London too. Walker & Hall silver was prolific and sells exceptionally well at auction with silver accross all categories from flatware, canteens, centrepieces, tea sets, salvers and countless other examples. The larger and more unusual pieces of plated ware also fetch excellent prices under the hammer.
