In Circa 1870 Wakeley & Wheeler a London Silversmiths opened a factory at 13 & 14 Fade Street, as a new build this premises was fitted out with the latest equipment of the day and employed approx. 40 silversmiths to produce hand made Irish silverware.


In 1929 the business was taken over John Alwright (a silversmith who had worked in the company since 1890) and Jock Marshall ( a silver chaser who had worked since 1895), they formed Alwright & Marshall Ltd. and the company trades under this name today.


A history of 137 years of silversmithing in Dublin we are the only company of its type remaining  in the 32 counties.


The main business of the company has been the manufacture and repair of handmade & crafted sterling silver and gold pieces including table ware, hotel ware, cutlery and also medals, trophies and chains of office for the corporate and sporting sector.

Since 1875

Approved by Dublin Assay Office

All of our manufactured silver and gold pieces are highly sought after worldwide with each piece tested and stamped by the Dublin Assay Office which was formed in 1637 and which requires all  silver manufacturers by law to register there makers punch with the Assay Office and all items of gold & silver they make have to be submitted for testing to ensure that it conforms the correct standards. As this process is carried out independently from the manufacturing company it provides unique customer protection.

Alwright & Marshall have produced many pieces for heads of state and the church over the years. Special commissions have always been a large part of the company’s work, pieces made to customers own specifications such as the Cross of Cong Processional Cross which now resides in the Smithsonian Institute in the USA.
