Born in New York City, Peter Field moved several times throughout his life, and he worked as a silversmith and watchmaker in Albany only for a short period, from 1795 to 1800. The monumental case was most likely made in New York City. Field was one of few Quakers living and working in Albany during the late eighteenth century.
