Items made by Sampson Mordan
Sampson Mordan and his company S. Mordan & Co manufactured a large variety of items. Fine silver and gold objects of excellent quality are what most people associate with the company, however, they produced much more than that. Advertisments from throughout the companys life show and describe many other types of items.
In time, as many items as possible that were produced by the company will be listed here, with a link to a page giving images and descriptions if at all possible. Whilst the majority of items listed will actually be the fine silver and gold objects that people have come to expect from S.
