Gilbert Marks (1861-1905) was widely admired for his works during his short lifetime. Very much a proponent of the Arts & Crafts movement that was revitalizing silver design, Marks was quoted in The Artist in 1898: "I do the designs myself, and never produce a duplicate. No dies or machinery are used and so the artist's fancy is at work upon the subject in hand from the moment when the design is first conceived."
