10″ Copper Saucepan with cover by Richard Perry & Co
Richard Perry & Co. Their production included some industrial art copperware designs by Christopher Dresser.
Two firms of japanners and tin plate workers were started at about the beginning of the 19th century, one by Richard Perry and his son, George; and one by his other son, Edward. It seems that Edward Perry became much the larger firm but it eventually came to be part of Richard Perry’s firm.
This company, set up by Richard Perry and his son George, was in Brickkiln Street. Father and son had both been japanners in the Old Hall works and struck out on their own. No further information found about this firm until we find reference to Edward Perry’s nephews, the Lees Brothers, carrying on the firm of Richard Perry & Sons. On Edward Perry’s death they acquired his business, possibly by inheritance. It was, almost certainly a much larger concern. It therefore seems that the company known as Richard Perry, Sons & Co, was a direct continuation of Richard Perry and George Perry’s firm and incorporated Edward Perry’s business.
