Anson, G., Broadmead, Bristol, carver and gilder (before 1798). Ceased business in June 1798 when his stock and tools were sold by auction. The stock included ‘a capital painting on plate glass, in a burnished-gold frame’ and ‘looking-glasses, in gilt and mahogany frames of various sizes’. Amongst his equipment was ‘an exceedingly good silvering table complete’. [Farley's Bristol Journal, 16 June 1798]
