Thomas Wallis II registered his first mark on
7th November 1778 as a plate-worker. He had been apprenticed to Thomas
Wallis I. Curiously there is no evidence that the two were related.
Thomas Wallis II then entered four marks as a buckle-maker between 1780 and
1789 before entering another mark in 1791 as a plate-worker. He
entered several more marks before going into partnership with Jonathan Hayne
in 1810. Thomas Wallis II was a prolific maker of sugar tongs.
His mark is a very distinctive script "TW" in a rectangular punch.
Thomas Wallis II marks also very often have a journeyman's mark.
