Murrle, Bennett and Company was a wholesale jewellers established in London in 1884 by Ernst Mürrle and a Mr. Bennett. Mürrle was a German immigrant born in the jewellery making centre of Pforzheim, and Bennett acted as the English partner. The firm produced jewellery largely in the German Art Nouveau style, also known as Jugendstil in Germany, meaning ‘youthful style’. The company likely sold much of their jewellery at Liberty & Co., the London Arts and Crafts emporium, as well as collaborated with famed art jewellers of the day including Theodor Fahrner. Their designs are often characterized by Celtic inspired interlacing elements, stylized foliate forms, pierced geometric shapes, hammering, rivets, luminous enamels and semi-precious stones. The company was renamed to White Redgrove and Whyte after the First World War, due to the repatriation of Mr. Mürrle.
