Custodial history:
B & S H Astardjiian, cotton exporters, were established in 1882. On 1 April 1949 the Company was incorporated as B & S H Astardjiian Ltd. The Company ceased trading in 1977. The Company's main business was exporting cotton textiles. Cloth of various kinds was bought from a number of firms in the United Kingdom and abroad. It was then sent out to various firms for dyeing and finishing. The finished cloth was then sold, sometime at home but usually overseas. The Company was involved in a number of other activities; it had an interest in the textile exporting company of J Baron & Co and in the textile producing company, Townley Manufacturing Co Ltd. The Company also dealt in stocks and shares on an investment footing.
