Abstract :
Studies a number of cases in the Court of Chancery, 1738-1739, relating to the Jernegan-Kandler silver wine cistern (Saint Petersburg, Hermitage Museum) and its sale by lottery in 1737. Shows how the cistern came to be made, 1730-1734, for Littleton Pointz Meynell who refused to pay for the completed piece, leaving Jernegan to arrange for its disposal by lottery. Re-examines the careers of Henry Jernegan (the retailer) and Charles Kandler (the silversmith whose Britannia standard mark the cistern bears). Argues there were two 'Charles Kandler' silversmiths in London, Charles who registered his mark in 1727 and is last documented in 1735, and Charles Frederick (or Frederick) who registered his mark in 1735 and died in 1778. Also suggests that Jernegan, himself a goldsmith of the first importance, was largely responsible for the establishment and success of the Kandler family workshop in London. ;
