Arthur Williams

Arthur Williams was a Regency Irish gilder from Dublin who worked for Richard Jackson (1786-1827). Jackson was well-known for his ‘looking glass warehouse’ at 5 Essex Bridge, which had been established during the reign of George II. Williams is known today as he signed and dated the back of numerous giltwood mirrors.

The signature of Arthur Williams appears on at least one girandole carrying the Jackson label.  It is thought most likely he was a member of the family that later became Mack, Williams and Gibton. A pair of convex girandoles with the Jackson of Dublin label, accompanied by an inscription on the reverse, ‘Arthur Williams Sept 29 1807’, was sold anonymously at Christie’s in 1997 (Important English Furniture 13 November, lot 124).  And another, Christie’s English Furniture, 15 Apr 1999 lot 156.
