Footnotes

  • The maker's mark is extremely similar to that on the proceding lot but is lacking a pellet between the letters, a particular closeness can be seen in the irregular left stroke of the 'A.' Grimwade mentions Jacob Amedroz of 6 Meards Street, Soho as having two marks I.A registered in 1798, and he notes, "His marks identified on fine gold snuffboxes," see page 229, London Goldsmiths 1697-1837.
