Description


This exceptional set of ten antique George III sterling silver plates has a plain circular form.


The raised border is embellished with an impressive contemporary bright cut engraved crest of a demi-talbot rampant, collared and lined*.


Each antique plate is ornamented with a fine and impressive applied tied reed decorated shaped border accented with a bead motif to the centre of each incurve.


The circular well of each plate is plain and unembellished.


The underside of each Georgian plate retains the silversmith’s centre punch mark in addition to the original item number**.


These sterling silver plates bear the original scratch weight 19.8troy ounces to the reverse surface; as to be expected the measured weight has subtly diminished in keeping with age.


These impressive plates were crafted by the renowned London silversmiths Andrew Fogelberg & Stephen Gilbert.


* This crest pertains to the Snell/Hood family; the heraldic blazons differ in the tinctures of the original crest.

 


** This set of plates is a segment of a more extensive service, which through time has been divided; therefore the original engraved numbers on the plates are not sequential, yet retain identical hallmark credentials and crests.


Date: 1788

Condition


These antique plates are an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.

There are surface knife scratches to the wells in keeping with the age, as to be expected with such pieces.

The applied decoration is very sharp and the bright cut engraved crest is very crisp.

Full hallmarks struck to the underside of each plate are all very clear.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of these pieces of Georgian silverware.
