Maker's mark of Jan Willem Burgers, The Hague, dateletter X for 1769.

Jan Willem Burgers was born in Cleve, Germany. In 1739 he entered the The Hague silversmith's guild. In the same year he married Anna Margaretha Nulman. Burgers became dean and assay-master of the guild in 1769. His oeuvre demonstrates his talent and probably gained him much acclaim in fashionable The Hague circles. Work by Burger is known up to circa 1780.
