Only mark enetered as largeworker, 11 November 1740. Address: Golden cup, Strand. Heal records him as plateworker, Golden Cup, against Southampton Street or corner of Cecil Street, Strand, 1740-53; and Peter and John Taylor, goldsmiths, at the same address, 1740. Peter Taylor, goldsmith, Strand, appears in the Parl. Report list, 1773, rather surprisingly, as there seems no other supporting evidence for his working so long and certainly no record of any mark at this date. Although rare, his work when found shows, a high standard of craftsmanship coupled with a nice use of rococo ornament.
