David Webb was born in Asheville, North Carolina. After an apprenticeship with his uncle, a metalsmith, Webb moved to New York and opened his first shop at the young age of 23. In less than 20 years, his talent and creativity gained him favor with the elite of New York society and with famous figures such as Elizabeth Taylor and Jackie Kennedy, who chose him to make the official Gifts of State. His inspiration for his work came from all areas including his iconic animal pieces, architecturally inspired designs, and pieces conceived from time spent studying the exhibits in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. After his death at the age of 50, the company leadership changed, but the legacy of David Webb continues today.
