No record of apprenticeship or freedom. Probably widow of Robert Jones. Mark entered as plateworker, 15 January 1783. Address: 49 Bartholomew Close. Cf. Robert Jones and John Schofield, 40 Bartholomew Close, 1776, and the apprenticeship of Robert, son of Robert Jones 'late of Bartholomew Close Goldsmith deed' in 1787. Her mark, which is rarely found except on salvers and waiters, must be carefully distinguished from that of Edward Jay, which appear to early to be hers.Description

The flat surface engraved in the George I ‘Hogarth Style’ with a fabulous band of brick-work, flowers, fruit, shells and bluebells. The four corners with cartouches of shell and acanthus leaves surrounded masks depicting the four seasons. The centre with a similar cartouche and family crest of a greyhound on chapeau.
