In Bristol in the year 1826, Solomon Blanckensee, a dealer in jewellery, began trading in his own name. The event proved to be one of some importance, for the firm he then founded grew rapidly and in the course of years absorbed a number of other prominent concerns, until 1936, in point of size and the variety and excellence of its products, it had few rivals in the jewellery industry.
Solomon Blanckensee stayed in Bristol for only a few years, and then moved to Birmingham.
He occupied a small 19th century house in Great Charles Street with his wife and family, conducting his business from the same premises, and built up a most successful concern. He died in 1863 and was succeeded by his two sons, Abraham and Aaron. The former died ten years later, when the surviving partner took his younger brother, Julius, into partnership.
