*Rococo Revisited
Silver kettle with ivory , Paul de Lamerie, London, 1736-38. 
Paul de Lamerie (1688–1751) was the greatest silversmith working in England in the 18th century. A Huguenot, or French Protestant, he came to London as a small child with his parents, fleeing persecution in France.

His success lay in his exceptional powers of invention and creation, but also in his ability as a businessman.
