Edmond Johnson was a silversmith working in the late 19th century and early 20th century, based in the Grafton Street and Wicklow street areas. In 1879 he started restoration work on the Ardagh Chalice and was later given permission to make copies of it and other objects. The replicas were much sought after. He was most recognized for making the Liam McCarthy Hurling Cup in 1921.
