Emick Romer, son of Michel Michelson Romer goldsmith of Oslo in Norway. Emick lived in Bragernaes and was apprenticed in 1749. It is thought that that Emick left Norway some time after 1751 and the mark attributed to him was entered after 1758. Romer appears to have been supplying sugar and cream baskets to Parkin and Wakelin 1770-1 and his mark appears on a number of pierced eopergnes circa 1765-75.
