Charles Fox is noted of producing work of “consistently high quality”.  Grimwade describes him as “perhaps one of the last individualist plateworkers before the debacle of Victorian mass production”.  Emes and Barnard was on of the largest working firms of their period, reported to have wide connections with in the trade.  The ledgers show that they supplied plate to the prestigious Rundell, Bridge and Rundell.
