Omar Ramsden (1873–1939) was a Sheffield-born silversmith. He was one of England's leading designers and makers of silverware. He lived on Fir Street in Walkley, Sheffield, Yorkshire.
Ramsden collaborated for many years with Alwyn Carr (1872-1940), establishing the Ramsden & Carr studio together in Chelsea in 1898, but their partnership ended in 1919.[2] Ramsden's mark used after their split was OMAR RAMSDEN ME FECIT (Latin: 'Omar Ramsden made me').[3]
He was made a member of the Royal Miniature Society in 1921 and exhibited over 90 works with the Society.
