History of Hersey & Son
M. C. Hersey & Son Ltd is a Silversmiths workshop based in London manufacturing sterling silver tableware as well as jewellery and
silver gifts. The founder of the company, Michael Hersey, established the business in 1971 having served 16 years as a silver spinner in Soho and Clerkenwell, starting as an apprentice at William Comyn's workshop in 1955. His son, Stewart, joined him in 1981 after training as a silversmith at The Sir John Cass School of Art, now part of London Guildhall University and at Grant Macdonald's workshop in
Southwark. Today the company are a team of silver spinners, silversmiths, polishers and engravers as well as a friendly bunch in the office to look
after our customers and ensure that dealing with us is a simple and pleasurable experience. Here at Hersey we are passionate about keeping the crafts of Silversmithing alive and the team use many time tested techniques which date back centuries alongside the latest cutting edge technology to create high quality and well designed pieces that will be enjoyed for
generations to come.
