Albert Edward Jones: was born in 1878 into a family
of craftsmen dating back to 1780, and died in 1954.

"A piece of silverwork to be really interesting must be
endued with a Spirit of Art....." A E Jones 1906

Apprenticed to Woodwards then Hardman Powells,
and trained at the Birmingham Central School of Arts,
under Edward Taylor he gained a reputation as a
developer and innovator . He worked as a Guildsman
at the Birmingham Guild of Handicraft where he was
influenced by the Arts and Crafts Movement and met
many artists and designers. Having made some
bronzeware at his father's premises he left the family
metalwork business and set up on his own in 1902.
Success came quickly, the workshop attracting a
talented group of artists and craftsmen inspired by
the Arts and Crafts movement. In 1905 he acquired
Jesson and Birkett with its trade mark of St. Dunstan
hand-raising a bowl. He collaborated with Edward
Taylor's son Howson, owner of Ruskin Pottery, in
mounting and using the coloured pottery as liners
for some of his silverwork which at this time was
all hand raised. The company produced many clock
cases with French movements and a considerable
amount of Ecclesiastical work. In 1958 his son
Kenneth Crisp Jones (also trained at the Central
School of Art Birmingham) took over the business
which has recently been acquired by C J Vander of
Sheffield.
