A varnisher with a pretty wife, from whom Pepys has ordered various items. Recommended to Pepys by Mr. Povy (Diary May 2, 1665):

"I by and by to Mr. Povy’s to see him, who is yet in his chamber not well, and thence by his advice to one Lovett’s, a varnisher, to see his manner of new varnish, but found not him at home, but his wife, a very beautiful woman, who shewed me much variety of admirable work, and is in order to my having of some papers fitted with his lines for my use for tables and the like."
