Oak is a tree or shrub in the genus Quercus - Latin "oak tree" having approximately 600 extant species. Oak wood has a density of about 0.75 g/cm3, great strength and hardness, and is very resistant to insect and fungal attack because of its high tannin content. It also has very appealing grain markings, particularly when quartersawn. Oak wood is very durable, easy to maintain and resistant to wear and tear which is why it can be easily handed to the next generations if taken well care of. 
Oak wood virtually lasts forever and you can still admire oak furniture in museums and palaces even if it was made many centuries ago. Oak has been prized since the Middle Ages for use in interior panelling of prestigious buildings such as the debating chamber of the House of Commons in London and in the construction of fine furniture.  

Daniel & Arter


The firm was established in Birmingham in the late 19th century  The founders were Thomas Henry Daniel (died 1897) and Thomas Richard Arter (died c. 1915) and was active at Globe Nevada Silver Works, Highgate Street, Birmingham as makers of brass, nickel-silver and electro-plated spoons, forks, ladles, etc. (1892).
The firm had also a London showroom at 62 Holborn Viaduct (until 1896) and later at 98 Hatton Garden.
Sterling silver hallmarks were entered in Sheffield Assay Office (1906) and London Assay Office (1913). Both these hallmarks were scarcely used.
In 1920 the firm was converted into a limited liability company and became Daniel & Arter Ltd.
The business was closed in the 1930s and their dies were purchased by W.J.Baker & Sons Ltd
