SylvaC was a trade name of Shaw and Copestake, a company formed by Mr. William Shaw and a Mr. Copestake, at the turn of the 19th – 20th centuries and succeeded by his son, Mr. Richard Hull junior In 1955. After the constraints of the Second World War, was the beginning of not only a vast change in production techniques, but also changes in the marketing of the products.
Initially the company was very successful, products having been sent worldwide with 30% of production going abroad. Unfortunately, during the 1970s, there was a steady decline in output, due to the recession and Far Eastern competition, and in May 1982 the company went into voluntary liquidation. Ironically, since its closure, SylvaC pieces have become highly collectible.
