Philip Ashberry & Sons
Biographical Account: Phillip Ashberry began making spoons at premises in Copper Street in 1829. Between 1839 and 1935 the firm operated from larger premises at Bowling Green Street. In the 1800s it was one of the largest manufactories of Britannia metal and electroplated goods in England. Spoons and ladles were one of their most important products. In 1935 the family closed the plant, the site was sold and the plant demolished. The trade name continued to be sold and used via several different companies up to the 1980s.
