Harris & Son Silver
There are few established businesses in Australia that have been around as long as Harris & Son. In 1921, Charles Harris and his son, Harold, began a partnership by melting down their own gold watch chains to make exquisite rings. They initially supplied their products to other jewellery retailers before opening their own establishment in Murray Street, Perth.
As renowned ring-makers from Birmingham, Charles and Harold produced many rings, brooches, pendants and other jewellery for many years using precious metals and stones. Some of these items have been included in the National Gallery and Powerhouse Museum.
In the 1950’s, Harold began crafting local wildflower motifs in sterling silver for decorative spoons, serving knives, letter-openers and various other items. These designs have survived over half a century and are regarded as some of the finest examples of craftsmanship in Australia.
Harris & Son Presents Gifts to the Queen
Harris & Son items have been presented as gifts to the Queen in 1954, as well as many other visiting dignitaries since this time.
Harris & Son Silver continues to create these historical Australian wildflower motifs today, using the same designs handcrafted by Harold over many decades.
The legacy of silver craft was passed down to the third generation through Harold’s children Max, Nola and John, and is now being produced by John’s son Cameron to make it a fourth-generation of Harris & Son.
Each item is worked individually to provide the highest quality product and represents a unique piece of Australian history. www.harrisandson.com.au
