Peter Rouw was of Flemish origin and was the son of Percy Rouw also a distinguished modeller in wax, who flourished during the first half of the nineteenth century. He worked largely on tinted wax of pinkish colour and some of his portrait medallions are in the Victoria and Albert Museum, the best being of Pitt, Fox, and the Prince Regent subsequently George IV.
It has been suggested that William Clay is related to the celebrated papier mâché manufacturer Henry Clay, d.1822.
