John Emes

Ostensibly the son of William Emes of Bowbridge Field near Derby surveyor, apprenticed to William Woolett of Green Street, Leicester Fields Citizen and Goldsmith, engraver on payment of £105 (one of the largest premiums recorded in the apprentice registers), 7 October 1778. Free, 5 July 1786.

First mark entered as a plate worker, in partnership with Henry Chawner on 27 August 1796. Address: Amen Corner. He presumably is dead in 1808, when Rebecca and William Emes entered their mark at the same address.

His work, mostly tea and coffee services with some tankards, shows a taste for elegant design and fine finish.
