Elkington and Co - George Richards Elkington and Henry Elkington patented the process of silverplating by depositing a thin layer of silver onto base metal by electrolysis. They developed this in the 1830s and by the end of the decade it had replaced the Old Sheffield plate technique.

In 1868 Queen Victoria permitted much of the Royal Plate to be copied by the Elkingtons.
