Harrogate's 'oldest shop' closes after 190 years

A family-run jewellers which created the world-famous FA Cup trophy is to close after almost 200 years of trade.

Antonio Fattorini opened his shop in Harrogate, believed to be the town’s oldest, after emigrating from Italy in 1831.

Current owner and Mr Fattorini’s great-great-grandson Anthony Tindall will retire in the new year after 45 years behind the counter.

He said: ‘It’s been a pleasure to serve many a customer.’

It was the family’s now-closed Bradford branch which made both the FA Cup trophy and Rugby League Challenge Cup.

The FA Cup design was crafted for the 1911 competition, fittingly won by Bradford City.

The original trophy, replaced by a newer model in 1992, was valued at £1m on the Antiques Roadshow in 2016.

The Harrogate shop is due to close on 8 January.
