Edmund Nye was a renowned Tunbridge Ware maker, who worked in Tunbridge Wells from 1809 until his death in 1863. Initially he was in partnership with William Fenner until 1817 and then continued in his own right, employing Thomas Barton as his foreman and designer in 1836.


Edmund Nye had a reputation for good quality work and he enjoyed royal patronage from 1836. He exhibited at The Great Exhibition in 1851and amongst his designs were fine examples of tropical butterflies.


Nye's designs included topographical subjects, floral  designs and birds. His work is often characterised by the use of light veneers such as satinwood and holly. He is also credited with being the first maker to use Berlin woolwork designs in Tunbridge Ware and to use oak attacked by  the fungus chlorosplenium aeruginosum, to achieve a green colour. Nye frequently labelled his work.
