STANLEY, CHRISTOPHER

(d. 1748)

Engraver

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

He was working in Dublin from about 1737. In Whitelaw and Walsh's "History of Dublin " (II, p. 1188), he is mentioned as "the first seal-engraver of whom there is any record in Dublin." He died in his house in Usher's Quay, on 18th December, 1748. The "Dublin Courant," in noticing his death, calls him "one of the best engravers in this city."
