Maker: Isaac Cookson
Isaac Cookson is most famous of the early Georgian Newcastle silversmiths. Free in 1726 after his apprenticeship to Francis Batty, he worked in London for about a year as journeyman for the leading silversmiths including George Wickes and possibly Paul de Lamerie. Returning to Newcastle he quickly established himself as the leading craftsman in the area and developed a flourishing business based in the shop previously owned by the late Francis Batty II. His large workshop employed many apprentices including John Langlands and John Goodrick who acquired the business in 1755. Cookson died in 1757.
