Maker Information

Maker: Elizabeth Godfrey

Elizabeth (Eliza) Godfrey nee Pantin. Married first to Abraham Buteaux on whose death in 1731 she carried on business as his widow until she married the following year to Benjamin Godfrey, Buteaux’s former journeyman. On Godfrey’s death in 1741 Eliza entered her own mark. Grimwade in his notable work “London Goldsmiths” describes Eliza’s work as showing “as might be expected, strong Huguenot characteristics of design and fine execution”.
