Other Notes: Paul de Lamerie (1688-1751) is considered one of the greatest silversmiths of the 18th century. The French Huguenot came to London as a young child with his parents, fleeing French Protestant persecution in France.
In 1703, de Lamerie became an apprentice to London based Huguenot goldsmith, Pierre Platel, and later was admitted to the freedom of the Goldsmiths' Company. By 1712, he had registered his own mark and established a workshop in the fashionable Soho area of the West End of London. By 1717, his workshop was recognized for its outstanding work and was known as "the King's silversmith". Over the next decade, de Lamerie took on over a dozen apprentices who paid high premiums to learn from the master.
de Lamerie's success lays with his exceptional workmanship and his business acumen. Tsarinas Anna and Catherine, Count Aleksey Bobrinsky, Sir Robert Walpole, the Earl of Ilchester, the Earl of Thanet, Viscount Tyrconnel, the Duke of Bedford, as well as King John V of Portugal were just some of his wealthy clients. For them he created astonishingly spectacular silverwork from his own workshop.
