    Frederick James Partridge (1877-1942) was a jeweller from Barnstaple, North Devon. He attended the Birmingham School of Art and worked at the Barnstaple Guild of Metalwork, the Guild of Handicraft at Chipping Camden and the Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts in London. In 1910, Partridge set up a studio in Dean Street where he designed for Liberty & Co. among others. He showed a strong Art Nouveau influence in his jewellery and his use of plique-à-jour enamel was particularly notable for an Arts and Crafts jeweller. Other examples of his work can be seen at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
