MAPPIN & WEBB – “Mappin & Webb is a true British treasure with over 240 years of tradition and historical significance in the world of silver and fine jewellery.”
Mappin & Webb is an international jewellery company headquartered in England. Renowned for combining timeless craftsmanship with superior quality and contemporary design, Mapping & Webb has produced exquisite fine jewellery, elegant silverware, watches, glassware, and the unique lifestyle accessories that have long been at the heart of affluent British society.
The story began in 1775, when Jonathan Mappin opened a silver workshop in Sheffield. The business eventually became Mappin Brothers, and its mission was and still is to create the most beautifully crafted silverware for British society. Then as now, Mappin & Webb is a major centre of the English silver trade.
Over the immediate years the company expanded internationally and beginning in the 1890s, Mappin & Webb, the first overseas store were established in Johannesburg, and stores soon followed in Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo, Biarritz, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Cairo, and Bombay.
Since 1897 the company has held Royal Warrants and commissions from Monarchs around the world, and become synonymous with excellence, craftsmanship and all things truly British. The company's master craftsman Mark Appleby is the current Crown Jeweller of the United Kingdom.
One of Jonathan Mappin's great-grandsons, John Mappin, in 1860, started his own business in London, Mappin & Company. By 1862, it became Mappin, Webb & Co. after John Mappin was joined by his brother-in-law George Webb. Then, the first Mappin & Web store opened at 77–78 Oxford Street, London. As a natural progression from silverware, Mappin & Webb began designing jewellery.
In 1903, Mappin, Webb & Co. acquired Mappin Brothers and three years later the premises on Oxford Street were rebuilt to designs by Belcher & Joass. Joass also rebuilt the Regent Street store (inherited from Mappin Brothers), in 1914. By the 1950s the latter store was proving more successful than the former, and in 1956 the company moved its headquarters from Oxford Street to Regent Street.
Mappin & Webb has created jewellery for royalty and high society; both in the United Kingdom, and internationally. Patrons have included Queen of France Marie-Antoinette, the Empress of Russia, and Princess Grace of Monaco. The company historically held Royal Warrants to both the Russian Empire and the Japanese Royal Household. Queen Victoria was the first British monarch to commission Mappin & Webb. Victoria's Golden Jubilee necklace was created by the house in 1888 and was designated by the Queen as an heirloom of the Crown.
Today, Mappin & Webb holds warrants to both Queen Elizabeth II, and the Prince of Wales. Mappin & Webb's master craftsman Martin Swift was appointed in 2012 to the position of Crown Jeweller, the custodian of the British Crown Jewels who is responsible for preparing them for the State Opening of Parliament and other state occasions. Mark Appleby, also of Mappin & Webb, took over as crown jeweller in 2017. Mappin & Webb also produced the original Ryder Cup trophy, and made trophies for the Royal Ascot horse races for 75 years.
Today, over +240 years, Mappin & Webb still continues to produce silverware and jewellery collections, and is a retailer of luxury timepieces in its boutiques, including timepieces from Swiss watch houses Rolex, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Patek Philippe, and Omega.

Vintage watches are traditionally smaller than today's watches. Men’s watches typically measure between 29-36mm wide (some larger, some smaller) excluding the crown. In the listing details we typically try to do our best to list all pertinent dimensions of a watch. If you don't see it, or we failed to do so, please reach out to us. Women’s watches from the 1900s-1970s were also much smaller than today's offerings. Please also feel free to ask any questions you have pertaining to size.
We prefer to shoot photographs outside when weather is permitting. However, when we shoot indoors, please be aware that we shoot our photographs inside of lightboxes that are lit with 360 LED bulbs. This indeed magnifies any flaws. Usually, they are much less obvious to the naked eye. Having said that, we never photoshop any of our photography, remove blemishes, etc. We adjust lighting when necessary, but what you see is what you are getting, and we take pride in that.
The condition is pre-owned.
The item may have some signs of cosmetic wear but is fully operational and functions as intended.
Please review the photos and feel free to ask any questions you may have.
It will be carefully packed.
