The History of Dembo & Sons Limited (Bristol)

The History of Dembo & Sons Limited (Bristol)
Article Published in the Illustrated Bristol News 1961.

There was a time about 30 years ago when Bristolians queued outside a little shop in The Mall, Clifton, waiting patiently to sell old gold and jewellery which had long since lost its use.

Those were the days of the’ gold rush’ and the shop was the first home of B. W. Dembo and Sons Ltd., the Bristol jewellers and watchmakers, whose head office is now in Park Street, City Centre.

This family business, which, like so many in Bristol, rebuilt itself from the ruins of the great German blitz of 1940, was founded more than 50 years ago by Mr. Louis Nathan Dembo, a shrewd businessman who knew his trade inside out even though he had very poor sight.

He had an uncanny sense of detection, and, according to his grandson, Mr. Leslie Dembo, a present director of the business, he could tell anything about a piece of antique jewellery just by the feel of it.

Mr. Dembo recalls: ‘It was quite amazing how he did it. Nothing got past him. He knew exactly what it was he was handling and from what period it originated.’

Dembos launched a considerable portion of their trade on the wave of a nation-wide advertisement campaign. This coincided with a boom period when second hand jewellery and gold was bought and sold on a large scale. It is still done, of course, and Mr. Dembo encourages the sale of suitable trinkets wherever possible. He does, in fact, travel appreciably in a quest for fine-quality pieces.

A far-reaching retail trade was built up from that shop in The Mall. Sovereigns were bought and gold was traded in to be melted down. As the name of Dembo gained in reputation so letters of enquiry began to be received from all over the world. From Morocco came consignments of gold.

Soon, the company had its own Post Office mailbag delivery system whereby a specially guarded van motored from Bristol to refiners in London and Birmingham.

It was inevitable that the existing shop premises would become too small to handle an expanding trade and, quite obviously it was time for a move. Dembos therefore took other premises in Queen’s Road, Clifton.

And it was from there that the go-ahead company raised a reputation for what is best in the antique trade. Antiques one suspects, were bigger business, perhaps, than they are today. It has diminished, it is true, although today Dembos still carry on a thriving trade in what is old.

Roman coins, for instance, continue to hold a curiosity all their own, and the company does have exported on their behalf ornate Victorian silverware particularly to America and to Italy. But to get back to those pre-war days.

Trade continued to flourish and soon the company was able to open a shop at 69 Park Street, and another in Bridge Street, City Centre. Dembos were now established. Influential people became their customers among them the Emperor of Ethiopia, Haile Selassie, and his son, the Crown Prince, both of whom were living at Bath at the time. On several occasions they took trips to Bristol and purchased from Dembos personal gifts of their choice. The family got to know them well.

But disaster was to follow. It came with the outbreak of the Second World War. And it came the same night for both shops. That night in 1940 they were both razed to the ground by enemy action. Little of the stock, worth thousands of pounds and built up over a number of years, was salvaged. It meant a new start. Dembos set about a revival.’ It came sooner than expected.

Mr. Bernard Dembo, who was never a man to miss an opportunity, saw that a shop at 6 Park Street, was vacant. A few makeshift arrangements were made. He moved in and within a matter of days trade was re-started right in the heart of Bristol. Once again there were queues. American servicemen were scrambling for those ‘cute little antique things.’ Dembos bought up complete collections. But still the company could not get enough to meet the demand. Gradually, therefore, the main trend of trade moved away from antiques into modern design in jewellery and watches.

Says Mr. Dembo: ‘During the war it was a different sort of trade. Tastes and times change. We find that people have become and are becoming on the whole more interested in contemporary styles.’

Yet there are facets of Dembos trade which the public never sees. The company is one of the largest suppliers of stop watches and industrial timers used by industries throughout the United Kingdom for time and motion study and in the laboratory. Mr. Leslie Dembo did, in fact, give the first exhibition in this country devoted entirely to instruments used in time and motion study and for other industrial purposes.

The exhibition, in February, 1958, at the company’s premises in Park Street, was attended by industrial Representatives from various parts of the country. Another Dembo speciality is complete architectural clock systems for such buildings as schools and banks. These clocks, big and small, are made for any building and from a design whi

Sir Martin Frobisher

Sir Martin Frobisher
Sir Martin Frobisher (c. 1535 or 1539 – 15 November 1594) was an English seaman (born Altofts, Yorkshire) who made three voyages to the New World to look for the Northwest Passage. All landed in northeastern Canada, around today’s Resolution Island and Frobisher Bay. On his second voyage, Frobisher found what he thought was gold ore and carried 200 tons of it home on three ships, where initial assaying determined it to be worth a profit of ?5.1 per ton. Encouraged, Frobisher returned to Canada with an even larger fleet and dug several mines around Frobisher Bay. He carted 1,350 tons of the ore back where, after years of smelting, it was realized that both that batch of ore and the earlier one he had taken were worthless. As an English privateer/pirate, he collected riches from French ships. He was later knighted for his service in repelling the Spanish Armada in 1588.

As early as 1560 or 1561, Frobisher had formed a resolution to undertake a voyage in search of a Northwest Passage as a trade route to India and China (referred to at that time as Cathay).

It took him fifteen years to gain necessary funding for his project. In 1576, Frobisher managed to convince the Muscovy Company, an English merchant consortium which had previously sent out several parties searching for the Northeast Passage, to license his expedition. With the help of Micheal Lok, the Muscovy Company’s director, Frobisher was able to raise enough capital for three barks: the Gabriel and Michael, of about 20-25 tons each and a pinnace of ten tons, with a total crew of 35. [1]

He weighed anchor at Blackwall, and, after having received a good word from Queen Elizabeth I of England at Greenwich, set sail on 7 June 1576, by way of the Shetland Islands.

In a storm, the pinnace was lost, and the Michael was abandoned, but on 28 July, the Gabriel sighted the coast of Labrador.

A few days later, the mouth of Frobisher Bay was reached, and because ice and wind prevented further travel north, Frobisher determined to sail westward up this passage (which he conceived to be a strait) to see "whether he might carry himself through the same into some open sea on the back side."

Baffin Island was reached on the 18 August 1576, where the expedition met some of the local natives. Having made arrangements with one of the natives to guide them through the region, Frobisher sent five of his men in a ship’s boat to return the native to shore, but instructing them to avoid getting too close to any of the other natives. The boat’s crew disobeyed, however, and were apparently taken captive by the Inuit. After days of searching Frobisher could not recover them, and eventually took hostage the man who had agreed to guide them to see if an exchange for the missing boat’s crew could be arranged. The effort was fruitless, and the men were never seen again, but Inuit legend tells that the men lived among them for a few years until they died attempting to leave Baffin Island in a self-made boat. Frobisher turned homewards, and reached London on 9 October. Among the things which had been hastily brought away by the men was a "piece of a black stone,". There assayers were unimpressed with the ore. Only one out of four experts consulted believed the ore to be gold-bearing, and he admitted he "knew how to flatter nature". Nevertheless, Frobisher’s backers, led by Micheal Lok and the Muscovy Company used this assessment to lobby for investment for another voyage. [2] Martin Frobisher found fools gold in Baffin Island.

The next year, a much bigger expedition than the former was fitted out. The Queen sold the Royal Navy ship Ayde to the Company of Cathay and provided ?1000 towards the expenses of the expedition. The Company of Cathay was granted a charter from the crown, giving the company the sole right of sailing in every direction but the east. Frobisher was appointed high admiral of all lands and waters that might be discovered by him.

On 27 May 1577, the expedition, consisting, besides the Ayde, of the ships Gabriel and Michael, with an aggregate complement of 150 men, including miners, refiners, gentlemen, and soldiers, left Blackwall, and sailing by the north of Scotland reached Hall’s Island at the mouth of Frobisher Bay on 17 July. A few days later, the country and the south side of the bay was solemnly taken possession of in the queen’s name.

Several weeks were now spent in collecting ore, but very little was done in the way of discovery, Frobisher being specially directed by his commission to "defer the further discovery of the passage until another time." There was much parleying and some skirmishing with the natives, and earnest but futile attempts were made to recover the men captured the previous year.

The return was begun on 23 August, and the Ayde reached Milford Haven on 23 September. The Gabriel and Michael later arrived separately at Bristol and Yarmouth.

Frobisher was received and thanked by the queen at Wind
