"Those who settled in the English-speaking world benefited from ambitious patronage from noble and professional clients. Goldsmiths who settled in the American colonies had more in common stylistically with those who worked in Dublin and Cork. First-generation Huguenot goldsmiths in London set the pace for the next generation which produced in Paul de Lamerie one of the most successful craft businesses of his generation. Beyond the Border explores the transatlantic links between the Huguenot goldsmiths who settled in Europe and America."--BOOK JACKET.
