Anthony Law told me: 'I worked for Anthony Elson from 1970 to 1973 as a chaser, carver and engraver and was responsible for the decorative/historical aspect of the Bristol 600 claret suite and for some of the design work. I made the electroforming patterns for the claret jug lids and handles and for the central discs in the coasters. If I remember correctly I also made the casting pattern for the goblet stems. Whereas I kept to the generally Mediaeval theme of the design the man in the boat on the claret jug lid is a self portrait (as I was then)
