A. Bonebakker & Zoon, Amsterdam
Adrianus Bonebakker became a master silversmith in Amsterdam in 1792. In 1801 Bonebakker formed a partnership with Diederik Louis Bennewitz and the brothers Peirolet and Peirolet, Bennewitz & Bonebakker very quickly became one of the leaders in style and fashion - Bennewitz was a creative silversmith and the driving force in this success. Due to the large number of incoming orders the company was forced to transfer some of its work to other silversmiths. From 1816 to 1818 a team worked on an order from the city of Amsterdam to create a wedding present for Prince William (later King William II) and Duchess Anna Pawlowna: a 419 piece dinnerware set of which a considerable part is today held by the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. In 1840 King William II ordered the royal crown to be made by Bonebakker.
After the partnership dissolved in 1821 for professional reasons, Bonnebakker continued to work under the name Ashes Bonebakker & Son.
