Joseph Angell & Family

Company founded in 1811, closed in 1889
 
The firm, founded in 1811 by Joseph Angell, is one of the most successful silver and jewellery manufacturers in the mid 19th Century.
 
After his apprenticeship to Henry Nutting, Joseph obtained his freedom in 1804. In 1811 he entered his first mark as a plate worker and registered his company at 55 Compton Street, Clerkenwell. Until 1849 the firm mainly supplied other London retailers such as Roskell and Rundell Bridge.
 
Joseph’s brother John joined the company in 1831 and in 1837 Joseph’s son, Joseph junior became third partner. The business changed name in Angell, son & Angell and in 1840 moved to 25 Panton Street, Haymarket.
 
Joseph Angell senior retired in 1849 and the business was carried on by his son, who also opened a retail shop in Charing Cross.
 
In 1851 Joseph Angel junior participated at the Great Exhibition at Crystal Palace, exhibiting some extraordinary artworks: a finely chased shield representing the battle of Issus between Darius and Alexander and subsequently acquired by Queen Victoria and a selection of coffee and tea services and claret jugs, intricately decorated with scrolls, flowers and eccentric ornaments. One of the sets on show, a gilt silver coffee and tea service, was awarded a prize Medal and is illustrated in the exhibition’s catalogue “The industry of all Nations”, 1851. Although its design became extremely popular and was reproduced several times during the 19th Century, the original one was acquired by the Victoria and Albert Museum in 1973.
 
The firm also exhibited in New York in 1853 and in the International Exhibition in 1862, winning other medals.
 
After Joseph’s death the business was managed by John’s son George and finally closed in 1889.

Angelica Kauffman, RA (1741 - 1807)

was a Swiss-born Austrian Neoclassical painter who had a successful career in London and Rome. Though born as "Kauffmann", Kauffman is the preferred spelling of her name in English; it is the form she herself used most in signing her correspondence, documents and paintings.

While Kauffman produced many types of art, she identified herself primarily as a history painter, an unusual designation for a woman artist in the 18th century. History painting, was considered the most elite and lucrative category in academic painting during this time period. Under the direction of Sir Joshua Reynolds, the Royal Academy made a strong effort to promote history painting to a native audience who were more interested in commissioning and buying portraits and landscapes.

Despite the popularity that Kauffman enjoyed in British society and her success as an artist, she was disappointed by the relative apathy that the British had towards history painting. Ultimately she left Britain for the continent, where history painting was better established, held in higher esteem and patronized.

The works of Angelica Kauffman have retained their reputation. By 1911, rooms decorated with her work were still to be seen in various quarters. At Hampton Court was a portrait of the duchess of Brunswick; in the National Portrait Gallery, a self-portrait. There were other pictures by her at Paris, at Dresden, in the Hermitage at St Petersburg, in the Alte Pinakothek atMunich, in Kadriorg Palace, Tallinn (Estonia).

Satinwood

is a hard and durable wood with a satinlike sheen, much used in cabinetmaking, especially in marquetry. It comes from two tropical trees of the family Rutaceae (rue family). East Indian or Ceylon satinwood is the yellowish or dark-brown heartwood of Chloroxylon swietenia.

The lustrous, fine-grained, usually figured wood is used for furniture, cabinetwork, veneers, and backs of brushes. West Indian satinwood, sometimes called yellow wood, is considered superior. It is the golden yellow, lustrous, even-grained wood found in the Florida Keys and the West Indies.

It has long been valued for furniture. It is also used for musical instruments, veneers, and other purposes. Satinwood is classified in the division Magnoliophyta, class Magnoliopsida, order Sapindales, family Rutaceae.
