The collection of the jeweller William Dugood (fl.1715–67) was purchased by William Constable in 1760 and survives at Burton Constable Hall. It includes geological specimens, manuscripts and thousands of casts taken from medals, ancient coins and engraved gems. This paper presents an account of the enigmatic William Dugood and considers the significance of his collection of casts, most of which he took from the Farnese numismatic and glyptic collections when employed as jeweller to the Duke of Parma in 1732–3.
