This talk tells the story of a unique Sheffield Cutlery pattern from the early 1890’s made by George Bishop and the link with a company George Watts that started out making clog-clasps and dog collars. The company was based at Lambert Street and the fine frontage is still visible today. The talk will also allow people to view and handle objects made by both companies.
