Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
This painting was probably painted to celebrate Kershaw reaching the end of his apprenticeship and to show the work he was capable of. Chase plate workers decorated gold and silver items and they worked with silversmiths or with the tradesmen who sold on finished pieces.
Portraits of known craftsmen are quite rare, so to find an example with an identified craftsman holding an item he has made is a bonus.
Oil on canvas in original wood gilt frame with a label verso with Kershaw's name and dates and an attribution to Godfrey Kneller.
