Born in 1854, William Arthur Benson set up his business W. A. S. Benson and Co in 1880 at North End Road ,West Kensington, London. Working within the English Arts and Crafts Movement, his firm's reputation for fine metalwork soon grew. Benson's designs for lighting and table ware in copper , brass and silver plate have become increasingly collectable as his work has become more widely appreciated. Benson and Co moved to larger premises in Hammersmith and continued until 1920 when he went into retirement. He died in 1925.
