Quality of Manufacture

The quality of manufacture is something that is paramount within JA Campbell and has been led by myself from the very start of my business. I insist on the highest quality possible and pride myself on every item that leaves my company.

It can mean that maybe my prices are not always the cheapest but I firmly believe in the saying ‘you get what you pay for’

When judging quality most people would know the difference between a Rolls Royce and a Ford and would not attempt to compare prices. However the same is not so obvious when judging items of silver tableware. At JA Campbell silverware is made up to a standard and not down to a price, so therefore it is not always the cheapest which probably goes a long way to explaining the first few lines above.

This has long been my explanation to people who query a price. I have to say in all the years of manufacturing, my company having a product returned with a quality issue is something I cannot remember happening. Of course there is only one way to prove this to yourself and that is to look on my website and make a purchase, then I will be very interested to here your comments on the quality of whatever you have chosen.

Silverware, as so many other choices in life, is a very individual thing, but I am sure amongst the ‘appetite’ or ‘classic’ collections you will find something to suit your home. There is also a range of silver baby gifts that are quite unique in design. Look at the ‘Over the Moon’ collection. There will be a new website on line soon featuring just those items. In the meantime they are on the main website.

I am sometimes asked what are my favourite pieces or what would I choose to buy. That is a difficult one and often depends on the pieces I have been making that day. So for example in the last few days I have made napkin rings, coasters, decanter tops and sugar sifters, so take a look at these, perhaps you will agree with me that quality counts
