About Adie Bros

The firm was incorporated in 1906 joining the firms of McKewan & Adie (manufacturing jewellers, gold and silversmiths) and Edward Souter Barnsley  (box and case makers). The firm was controlled by Percy Adie until 1901 and afterwards by Tony Adie and Frank Taylor. In the late 1960s the firm became part of British Silverware and closed in 1968.

British Silverware Ltd had a strong track record in supplying the finest bespoke silverware to some of the world's largest super yachts.

The prestigious firm of Elkington & Co. in 1963 were  taken over by British Silverware, Ltd. In 1971 British Silverware, Ltd. became a subsidiary of Delta Metal Co. Ltd


Adie Bros were well known for their vanities too, most particularly those adorned with guilloche enamel.
