A.E. Jones became famed for its hallmarked silver as well as various other items produced from copper, bronze and brass. Large quantities of these pieces were unmarked except for a pattern number, yet they remain traceable back to the firm – due to the fine craftsmanship and distinctive design that is evident in them. A.E. Jones & Co was also known to have supplied Connell of Cheapside with silver plated items which were retailed under the Connell name – these pieces also stamped with pattern numbers as used by A.E. Jones & Co and as seen on this tazza.
