Although no maker's name appears on the board, the trade mark, that was registered on the 22nd October 1880, clearly identifies the manufacturer as Silber & Fleming of 56, Wood Street, Cheapside, London. The initials within the trade mark 'AMS' are those of sole proprietor of this business Albert Marcius Silber. The Wood Street premises of Silber & Fleming were destroyed by fire in December 1882 and rebuilt by 1884. They became a limited liability company in 1886 and were acquired in 1898 by Faudel Phillips & Sons in 1898.
