The art of the silversmith achieved extraordinary greatness in the Georgian period, in regards to design as well as craftsmanship. Characterized by ornate and lavish designs, floral and scroll patterns, Paul de Lamerie was one of the first silversmiths of the 18th century to work in the Rococo style, alongside the many other styles that succeeded each other during this time.
