The mark, Grimwade #3656,"must have been entered in the missing register between 1758 and 1763,

when it is recorded by Chaffers" on as inkstand. A slightly different mark was entered in 1770.
John Langford II and John Sebille (of reported French Huguenot descent) worked together briefly

(c1758 -1773) on St. Martins Le Grand in London.

Records show that in 1766, they supplied Parker and Wakelin with a wide range of pierced work

including bottle stands, salts, bread baskets and cream pails.
A cake basket (below) by Langford and Sebille, 1763-4, is in the collection of Mary Strong Shattuck,

 

The "dish cross" is an outgrowth of the earlier brazier, often with hot coals,

for heating and support of a dish on a side table.

They date from the mid-18th century, some having burners, and some simply as raised support.

This dish cross is an early example.
