Maker: Philip Garden
Philip Garden (other spellings Phil(l)ip(s), apprenticed to Gawen Nash 1730, free 1738. First mark entered as smallworker 1738, 2nd mark, as largeworker, 1739, 3rd 1744, 4th 1748, 5th 1751. Livery 1746. Grimwade describes Garden as an admirable exponent of the rococo style.
There is an interesting hypothesis that Garden acquired the tools and models from Paul de Lamerie’s estate after his death in 1751. Some of Garden’s subsequent work bear identical features to Lamerie’s indicating some connection between the two master silversmiths.
