LEWIS, FRANK

(fl. early 19th century)

Engraver

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

Was an engraver of seals and book-plates in Cork. He cut seals in boxwood, marvels of minute work; and had a method of producing artificial stones for armorial seals which he made from clay and baked in a certain way so as to produce the necessary hardness. A large book-plate, signed, was engraved by him for the well-known Cork author and antiquary, John Windele.
