|Daniel Christian Fueter born in Berne, Switzerland in 1720, worked as a goldsmith until 1749, when he took part in a conspiracy of Samuel Henzi to overthrow the aristocratic regime, where he was caught and condemned to death, but managed to escape to London. Where he entered his maker's mark at Goldsmiths' Hall in 1753, with the address of King's Road, Chelsea "next door to the Man In The Moon". He then moved to New York, and an advertisement shows that he was working there in 1754.|
It rare to find examples of his work.
