Maker Information

Maker: Rundell‚ Bridge & Rundell

Rundell, Bridge & Rundell Philip Rundell (1746-1827) and John Bridge (1755-1834) formed a partnership circa 1788. The business manufactured exquisite goods in precious and semi-precious materials, dealing in silver and silver-gilt, diamond and pearls and all manner of jewellery, gold boxes, watches and objects of vertue and the two were appointed Goldsmiths and Jewellers to the King circa 1797 and the royal warrant continued until 1843. Among their many prestigious commissions the business was responsible for the Crown Jewels used at the coronations of George IV, William IV and Queen Victoria, as well as the wide range of banqueting plate and jewellery now in the Royal Collection. Rundell's nephew Edmund Waller Rundell joined them in 1805 and they became Rundell, Bridge & Rundell. In 1834 the name changed to Rundell, Bridge & Co. Paul Storr worked with them from 1807 until he left to form his own business in 1819. The business closed in 1843 although the partnership was not dissolved until 1845.
