From Wikipedia:

Tiryns is a Mycenaean archaeological site in Argolis in the Peloponnese, and the location from which mythical hero Heracles performed his Twelve Labours.

Tiryns was a hill fort with occupation ranging back seven thousand years, from before the beginning of the Bronze Age.
It reached its height between 1400 and 1200 BC, when it was one of the most important centers of the Mycenaean world, and in particular in Argolis. Its most notable features were its palace, its Cyclopean tunnels and especially its walls, which gave the city its Homeric epithet of "mighty walled Tiryns". Tiryns is linked with the myths surrounding Heracles, as the city was the residence of the hero during his labors, and some sources even cite it as his birthplace.

The famous megaron of the palace of Tiryns has a large reception hall, the main room of which had a throne placed against the right wall and a central hearth bordered by four Minoan-style wooden columns that served as supports for the roof. Two of the three walls of the megaron were incorporated into an archaic temple of Hera.

The site went into decline at the end of the Mycenaean period, and was completely deserted by the time Pausanias visited in the 2nd century AD. This site was excavated by Heinrich Schliemann in 1884–1885, and is the subject of ongoing excavations by the German Archaeological Institute at Athens and the University of Heidelberg. In 1300 BC the citadel and lower town had a population of 10,000 people covering 20–25 hectares. Despite the destruction of the palace in 1200 BC, the city population continued to increase and by 1150 BC it had a population of 15,000 people.

Tiryns was recognized as a World Heritage Site in 1999.

Noteworthy : The Plaque Is Hallmarked For The Same Time As Schliemann Was Excavating.

Much Can Be Found On HB Iriving Including The Following:

Although, as a child, he appeared a couple of times in his father's productions, it was intended that he would become a lawyer. He attended Marlborough College and New College, Oxford where he studied law and appeared in some student productions. Afterwards, in 1894, he was called to the Bar at the Inner Temple, but instead of pursuing a career as a barrister he decided to become an actor, taking the stage name H. B. Irving to distinguish himself from his father.

His first appearance on the stage, at age of twenty-one, was at the Garrick Theatre, London, in School. In 1906 he toured with success throughout the United States, appearing in plays made memorable by his father, The Lyons Mail, Charles I, and The Bells. In 1905 he gave a lecture, largely autobiographical, to the Academy of Dramatic Art in London. Inevitably, his early years as an actor were spent in the shadow of his father, especially as, at first, he was a member of Sir Henry Irving's Company.
In 1896, he married Dorothea Baird, who, after playing the part of Trilby the year before, was, at that time, the best known actress in Britain. HB and Dorothea had a son Laurence, who became a well known Hollywood art director, and a daughter Elizabeth. HB continued to be part of his father's company, but soon felt the need to branch out. In 1898, he joined George Alexander at the St James's Theatre where he played Don John in Much Ado About Nothing, and appeared in the surprising hit, The Ambassador, a play written by Pearl Mary Teresa Craigie.
For the following seven years, the couple, selecting the parts that appealed to them, moved between companies, sometimes together and sometimes separately. In 1900, they both appeared in Beerbohm Tree's production of A Midsummer Night's Dream that ran for 153 performances at Her Majesty's Theatre.
In 1904, only a year before his father's sudden death on 13 October 1905, Irving played Hamlet for the first time. The production by Otho Stuart, which was a popular success, was presented at the Adelphi Theatre, with Oscar Asche as Claudius, Walter Hampden as Laertes and Lily Brayton as Ophelia.
After his father's death, he established his own company, that included his wife, and toured most provincial cities, playing mainly repeats of Sir Henry Irving's best remembered performances. For the opening night of the new King's Theatre in Southsea he presented Charles I, The Bells and The Lyons Mail. Occasionally, other plays were presented including, most successfully, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde at the Queen's Theatre, London. Film historian Troy Howarth writes "Some sources credit (Irving), who played Jekyll and Hyde on stage, as the director of The Duality of Man (a 1910 British film adaptation of the Jekyll and Hyde story)....".[2][3]
In 1911, Irving, Baird and their London Company toured Australia, again presenting Hamlet. Two years later, Baird retired from the stage, while Irving kept on performing. In 1913 he visited South Africa, and a photograph records his dinner with the Owl Club in Cape Town. In 1914, he appeared with Basil Rathbone in The Sin of David at the Savoy Theatre.
During World War I, Irving withdrew from the theatre and returned to the law, writing the study for which he is now most famous, A Book of Remarkable Criminals, originally published in 1918, which examined the lives, motivations and crimes of some infamous murderers, Life of Judge Jeffreys, French Criminals of the 19th Century and other papers on the subject. After spending twenty years of his life dedicated to the theatre, his greatest success came from being what it was intended he should be, a legal expert.
H.B. Irving was also a founding member of Our Society with Arthur Conan Doyle, Arthur Diosy, J.B. Atlay, and the Coroner Ingleby Oddie (among others). Our Society is the still flourishing "Murder" Club in London, where old crimes are discussed at regularly held dinners.

Bryant & May was a British company created in the mid-19th century specifically to make matches. Their original Bryant & May Factory was located in Bow, London. They later opened other match factories in the United Kingdom and Australia, such as the Bryant & May Factory, Melbourne, and owned match factories in other parts of the world.

Formed in 1843 by two Quakers, William Bryant and Francis May, Bryant & May survived as an independent company for over seventy years, but went through a series of mergers with other match companies and later with consumer products companies; and were taken over.

The registered trade name Bryant & May still exists and it is owned by Swedish Match, as are many of the other registered trade names of the other, formerly independent, companies within the Bryant & May group.

In Georgian Times The Pineapple Was A Rare And Prized Fruit. Only The Host With The Most Could Serve It. This Association With Luxurious Entertainment Propelled The Pineapple To Symbolic Status, The Symbol Of Hospitality.

On The Other Hand If You Should Find A Pineapple On Your Porch It Is An Invitation From A Neighbour To Swing!

A Good Victorian Tin Lined Copper Oval Jelly Mould With Overlapping Coin Top, Stepped Fluted Sides And Plain Base; Stamped Benham & Froud Orb And Cross Marks.
171mm Wide x 116mm Deep x 90mm High.
Circa 1850
Excellent Condition.

 

Benham & Froud c1855-1924, flourished at Chandos St, London, described in the local registry as general metal workers, art metal workers and lamp manufacturers. The famous 'orb' was adopted because the firm made the present cross on the dome of St Paul's Cathedral in 1821 and it could be seen from the shop in London. An orb may also have been used by other makers. Interestingly, it also represents and inverted 'ankh', the Greek symbol for copper.

The following brief notes are derived from work by John Hardcastle:

In 1785 John Kepp set up as a coppersmith and brazier in Chandos Street, London. Around 1818 the company was in the names of Richard and Edward Kepp. In 1821 they made the replacement orb and cross for St. Pauls Cathedral 23ft high and weighing seven tons. The orb and cross trademark was used from 1855 to 1924. In 1855 the company was taken over by Herbert Augustus Benham, Joseph Froud and four others, becoming known as Benham & Froud. In 1906 it was reformed as Herbert Benham & Co. in Marlborough Mews, Great Marlborough Street London W., moving to Ramillies Place, London in 1920 and not found in directories after 1924.

A William Ballantyne, Pewterer, Is Recorded As Working In Edinburgh In The Mid 18thC.

A Communion Cup In The National Museums Of Scotland Collection Has These Notes:

"This pewter communion cup is from the Associate Congregation Church of East Barns in East Lothian. It dates from 1781.

The inscription on the cup reads 'Belonging to the Associate Congregation of East Barns 1781'.

The Associate Congregation was one of the groups that broke from the established Church of Scotland at the original secession in 1733. Secessions and the Disruption of 1843 increased the need for communion cups, basins and lavers."

Elsewhere In Scottish Genealogy It Is Noted Of East Barns

"This congregation originated with members of the second congregation of Haddington, resident in Innerwick and adjoining parishes who applied to the General Associate Anti-burgher Presbytery to be formed into a separate congregation, which was done in 1760. They erected a place of worship at Eastbarns, a village 3 miles east of Dunbar, where they continued until 1820, when, finding most of their members’ resident in the town of Dunbar, they erected a place of worship in Dunbar and removed there."

Howell James & Company were a firm of jewellers and silversmiths based in Regent Street in London which operated between 1819 and 1911.

The firm Howell and James was founded in 1819 by James Howell and Isaac James who were originally silk mercers and retail jewellers. The company had premises at 5, 7 and 9 Regent Street and was noted for the variety and quality of its stock. In 1838 James left the business and the partnership then became known as Howell James & Co. By 1865 the firm employed over 140 women, most of whom lived above the shop.[1]

The firm exhibited in London, at the Great Exhibition in 1851 and at the 1862 International Exhibition, and in Paris and the International Exposition of 1867. It sold items by students and designers of the South Kensington School.[2]

On the subject of destroying all object d'art made from ivory, and in particular portrait miniatures painted on ivory, television presenter and antiques expert Philip Mould said: "The thought that, say, some of our most emotive miniature portraits of Nelson, Byron and the young Queen Victoria become persona non grata - artworks of shame for which there is no market - is up there with book-burning and recent cultural vengeance meted out on the buildings of ancient Syria."

Yes, We All Know There Should Be Nothing That Encourages The Slaughter Of Elephants For Their Tusks, Deplorable In The Extreme, But To Our Mind That Policy Should In No Way Extinguish The Appreciation Of Old Worked Ivory Such As This. We Feel Prince William, Admirable Though His Campaign To Save The Elephants Is, Was Misinformed When He Declared All The Ivory In Buckingham Palace Should Be Heaped Into A Pile And Turned Into A Bonfire! Are We Going To Burn 13thc Islamic Chess Pieces, 18thC Japanese Netsuke, 19thC Dieppe Mirrors, Medievil German Saints? Of Course Not! Old Ivory Is Wonderful.
