Initially known predominantly as silversmiths, they subsequently opened premises in Hartlepool, Newcastle and Sunderland. The firm converted to a limited liability in 1909 - ceasing trading in the 1960's.
Elliotts have a long tradition of quality clockmaking - eventually forming their own world renown company of FW Elliot in 1925. The company ceased trading in 1998.
