workers in the 1940sFlatware manufacturing has always been a specialised skill, learnt by apprenticeship to a "Master" craftsman. The apprentice, when released to practice his trade, would in turn become master to his own apprentice. It is therefore possible to trace chains of masters and apprentices back to reveal a fascinating pedigree of the skills still used today by Fletcher Robinson Ltd.
