In the Eighteenth and early Nineteenth centuries, it was common for a widow to carry on the silver business on her husbandís death Ė always assuming she was able to. In Alice Burrowsí case, her son was a working silversmith at the time his father died, so it was only natural that they would enter a mark together. They worked together for 18 years, which is a very long time by any standards of the day. Alice & George Burrows entered their first mark on 10th July 1801 as plate-workers and subsequent marks up to 6th May 1818.
