Jonathan Hayne was apprenticed to Thomas Wallis II on 1st January 1796. They registered a mark together on 22nd February 1810. They stayed together until Jonathan Hayne registered a mark alone on 3rd July 1821. Their work together therefore lasted over eleven years. The style of their tongs is typified by having bright cut engraving to the top half of the arms only. This style lasted through their whole time together. They did occasionally make tongs that were bright cut all over, plain and even with a fine thread and beaded edge. Towards the later part of their career, the bowls tended to get larger which was in keeping with other makers of the period.
