Chawner & Company was founded in 1815 by William Chawner, on the solid grounding of an apprenticeship and later partnership within the most important line of specialist spoon and forks makers dating back to the mid-18. Chawner & Company became the largest and most important specialist silver flatware makers of the 19. In 1840, George W Adams took over the business from his mother-in-law Mary Chawner and developed the company even further using his GA makers mark.
They introduced new flatware patterns and fashioned silver for important private clients and high end retailers. The company was prolific in their output and always produced the best quality silver flatware available. The spoons and forks were hand forged to ensure balance and durability, and were made from a good gauge of silver to give them a nice hefty weight in the hand. The reputation of Chawner & Company endures to this day and a canteen wrought by them will give maximum satisfaction.
