Catalogue Note

William Ker Reid (1787-1868) was one of the sons of Christian Ker Reid (1756-1834), founder of the well-known Newcastle goldsmiths, Reid & Sons. While W.K. Reid remained a partner of Reid & Sons until 1858 he had long before settled in London as a working silversmith, entering a joint mark there with Joseph Cradock in 1812. The partners went their separate ways in 1825. W.K. Reid retired from business at the beginning of 1855 in favour of his son, Edward Ker Reid who continued the business until his death in 1886.
