Wood, Samuel – English Silversmith

Samuel Wood (English, 1704-?)

Samuel Wood was born 1704, and in 1721 was apprenticed to Thomas Bamford who had been bound to Charles Adam. Wood came from a continuous line of specialist castor-makers. According to Arthur Grimwade so many were produced and were of such a ‘uniformly high standard and one of the most attractively designed smaller items of plate, without which no reasonably equipped table of the eighteenth century appears to have been complete’.
