In Search of Ramsden and Carr
While looking into her genealogy, particularly the Cumberbatches from Barbados, Helen
Ashton discovered the silversmith Omar Ramsden and his connection to her family.
Omar Ramsden and fellow Sheffield-born designer Alwyn Carr set up a partnership in 1898
moving to London to exploit the fashionable taste for handmade silver of the Arts and Crafts
Movement and, with the help of skilled artisans, made articles adapted from Gothic and
Renaissance designs with Celtic-style inscriptions, which became their trademark.
A fascinating story, painstakingly researched following one of the most successful
silversmithing collaborations of the 20th century. Helen's interest became a fascinating
obsession, resulting in three years of research to find out about his family background in
Sheffield and his long partnership.
