Gosset, James (1749-1767)

Gosset, James

Berwick Street, Soho, London; wood carver and wax modeller (1749–67)

Of the famous Huguenot family of carvers. His address would suggest that he was living with and probably co-operating with Gideon Gossett.

His only known commission is that for Peter Du Cane of Braxted Park, Essex, though the work was for his London house in St James's Square. On 1 May 1749 James Gosset was paid £41 16s for new picture frames and repairs and renovation to old ones [Heal; Essex Record Office, D/DDc A17, fl. 73].
