Fattorini & Sons was a jewellery business established by a family of Italian immigrants who arrived in the British city of Leeds, in Yorkshire, England in the early 19th century. Antonio Fattorini opened a shop in Harrogate to take advantage of seasonal trade in Harrogate in 1831, this business is today owned and run by descendants of the founders. In the 1850s, he opened a shop in Bradford with two of his sons.
The fob is made in Birmingham by Herbert Bushell & Son Ltd and dates to 1910, the last year of the Edwardian period. Starting out in the 1890s, Herbert Bushell was joined in partnership by his son in 1910. They are best known for their good quality watch fobs and remained in business together until the start of the First World War.
