  • Denis Lacy-Hulbert (1911 – 2005)

    An engineer by profession having a passion for clocks and woodwork. He took up silver making classes in the 1950s at Chesterfield Technical College, registering his mark with the Sheffield Assay Office on the 9th December 1953. He made a wide range of silverware which included a Queen Anne style teapot which was much admired by Arthur Negus. Over the years he gradually specialised in making tumbler cups and at the age of 90 was giving master classes to other enthusiasts. He was greatly interested in hallmarks and in July 1969, became a Guardian and a Member of the Executive Committee of the Sheffield Assay Office where he exhibited one of these gold tumbler cups, which was also exhibited in the Goldsmiths Hall. He was also a member of the British Hallmarking Council.
