Joseph Scammell entered his first mark as a plate-worker on 11th August
1788. He had died by 1800.
Again, it is quite possible that these are wrongly attributed. We have
several makers with the mark IS:
Joseph Savory I
Joseph Steward II
It is therefore quite possible to mix these up! These particular sugar tongs are dated c1786
- 1790 and are bright cut. This particular mark is very difficult to make out as the “I”,
“T” and “S” can be very similar with many makers of this period.
