About the artist

Dirk Evert Grave was a Dutch silversmith, born in Amsterdam in 1735. He manufactured various tableware items such as teajars, candlesticks, vases, and storage jars with intricate inlays. These were sought out mainly by wealthy Dutch residents who commisioned him to produce pieces for their stately homes in the countryside. He was most active in his late years between 1785 and 1790 before he passed in 1795. His works are now on display in the Boijmans van Beuningen Museum in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
