Albert Edward Jones

 

Albert Edward Jones was a noted Arts & Crafts silversmith, firmly believing that "a piece of silverwork, to be really interesting, must be endued with a Spirit of Art." Often referred to as A.E.Jones, his pieces have a distinct Arts & Crafts style, sometimes bearing his sponsor's mark A.E.J in an oval surround. However much of his work was unmarked, and is recognisable by his distinct, crafts-driven and ecclesiastical style. A Midlands maker, he studied his craft at Birmingham and shared his design ideals with prominent figures such as Cuzner and Gaskin, cementing his place as one of the key Arts & Crafts silversmiths of the early 20th century.

Contemporary Albert Edward Jones silverware includes realistic models of animals, with horses, dogs and fox models fetching fantastic prices under the hammer.
