HARDY BROS – AUSTRALIA
Founded by John Hardy, aged 22, in 1853
Hardy Bros is still in existence. (The firm was under the control of the Hardy family until 1980). It achieved a high reputation as watchmakers, jewellers, silversmiths and opticians in Australia in the second part of the nineteenth century.
From the 1900s it also imported a wide range of goods bearing hallmarks of the London, Birmingham and Sheffield assay office.
In 1929 Hardy Bros received the Royal Warrant from His Majesty King George V as goldsmiths and jewellers. This entitled them to use the Royal coat of arms in connection with their business.
