JAs WILKINSON & SON
GUNMAKERS
TO HIS
MAJESTY
After the death of Henry Nock (gunsmith) in 1804 James Wilkinson took over the business and had advertised himself as “ James Wilkinson Gunmaker, successor and son-in-law to the late Mr Henry Nock ” as was the fashion of that period. So when in 1824 Henry (his son) joined the family business this was changed to reflect the new situation. From then Father & Son would be trading under “ James Wilkinson & Son ” or more simply “ Wilkinson & Son ”. Based in Ludgate Hill London
The company would have a handful of men at the helm over the years but ended up being the company now knows worldwide as Wilkinson Sword
the sign would date from 1824/1837. and would of likely been a interior sign due to its nature

Period: 

19th Century
