*Robert Edgar Stone known professionally as R.E. Stone was an English silversmith and was the son of a carpenter. Born in 1903, he was famous for its handcrafted style and the work he produced for several notable clients. Stone trained at the Central School of Arts in London. During his time with the school, he enjoyed a scholarship from the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths. This enabled him to travel through Europe and also train in Paris. He founded his own workshop in 1929. Stone’s work is distinctive for being completely handmade, even during eras when similar works were being mass-produced.
