Matthew & Thomas Dutton were the sons of William Dutton, who was a business partner with Thomas Mudge c.1765. Together, they greatly employed the skills attained in the Tompion and Graham era. They were patronised by the wealthiest members of the aristocracy as it was generally acknowledged that their designs, the quality of their work and their elegant cases surpassed all others.
