    Charles Frederick Kandler was a master goldsmith working in London from around 1730 until 1778. His rococo pieces of the 1730s and early 1740s were inspirational to later generations of silversmiths and his work is often compared to that of Paul de Lamerie (1688-1751) and George Wickes. Kandler's most important surviving works include the silver kettle-on-stand (c. 1730-32) at the Victoria and Albert Museum, and the silver wine cooler (1734), in the Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg. Although scholars disagree on his specific origin, he is certainly German (possibly from Dresden). Researchers suggest that Kandler is a successor of the sculptor and Meissen porcelain modeller Charles Kandler (active 1727-1750).
