In 1787 the jeweller Rundell, with his partner John Bridge, founded the Regency's leading goldsmiths firm. Noted for quality and craftsmanship, they commissioned designs from artists such as Flaxman, Stothard and Pugin. Appointed Royal Jewellers in 1789, much of their most luxurious jewellery and plate was produced for the royal family. Rundell was the astute partner who handled business, while the sociable Bridge dealt with clients. The unmarried Rundell was a legendary miser who died a millionaire and left his fortune to his great-nephew Joseph Neeld.
