Gem Engraver

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

Was probably son of Hugh Caddell, jeweller, a quarter-brother of the Goldsmiths' Corporation in 1756, who died in Camden Street in May, 1790. The younger Caddell entered the Dublin Society's School in 1776, and was afterwards a pupil of John Logan (q.v.). About 1787 he established himself as a seal and gem engraver at 13 Skinner's Row, where he remained until 1791, and then moved to 16 Cork Hill. He died young, probably in 1796.
