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.

A Pair Of French Equestrian Engravings




A Pair Of 18thC French Equestrian, Dressage, Copper Plate Engravings In Modern Burr Wood Frames.

This pair of 18thC French equestrian engravings originates from: 'The Encyclopedie ou Dictionnaire raisonne des sciences, des arts et des metiers, par une Societe de Gens de lettres.' which was published under the direction of Diderot and d'Alembert, with 17 volumes of text and 11 volumes of plates between 1751 and 1772. It contained 72,000 articles written by more than 140 contributors. This encyclopedia was a massive reference work for the arts and sciences, as well as a means to propagate the ideas of the French Enlightenment. The impact of this encyclopedia was enormous.

Artists and Engravers: Denis Diderot (1713-1784) was a French philosopher, art critic and writer. Jean le Rond d'Alembert (1717-1783) was a French mathematician, mechanician, physicist and philosopher. These plates are engraved by J.A.Defehrt and Bonaventure/Benoit-Louis Prevost after J.R Lucotte or Goussier.
