Hester Bateman

Hester Bateman was the most prominent member of the famous Bateman family of silversmiths. She is often referred to as the ‘Queen of English Silversmiths’. In 1732 she married John Bateman, a maker of watch chains. Using the new techniques that became available in her days and well aware of the demands of the expanding silver market, she was instrumental in the establishment of a strong and expanding family business near London. Upon the death of her husband in 1761 she registered her own maker’s mark. Her work is generally characterized by refined shapes, with restrained decorations, often limited to beading on the edges. This characterization fits the 1780 Rimmonim offered for sale here, in which a plain neo-classical form predominates the carefully restricted decoration, largely consisting of beaded lines along the edges. Hester Bateman was also known as one of England’s foremost bright-cut engravers. Upon her retirement in 1790, she handed over the business to her sons, Peter and Jonathan. Other prominent silversmiths of the Bateman family were Hester’s daughter-in-law Ann, her grandson William and her great-grandson William Jr.

Hester Bateman is known to have produced one other important piece of Judaica, being a 1781 Sabbath Lamp (illustrated in M. Clayton’s Collector’s dictionary of the silver and gold of Great Britain and North America (1971). Reference: Christie’s
