Mr Brice Wright

Associated with Ethnology collections

Bryce McMurdo Wright, Sr. (spelled "Brice" before 1860) was one of England's most prominent 19th-century mineral dealers. He and his son (Bryce McMurdo Wright, Jr., 1850-1896) dealt in minerals, fossils, shells, rocks, gems, corals, ethnological collectibles, and worked stones old and new for over 50 years. Despite their varied and worldwide stock in trade, it is for the minerals of northern England that their name is best remembered.
