Description


This fine antique George III sterling silver wax jack has a cylindrical column to a domed spreading circular base.


The wax jack has a cylindrical capital supported by a plain circular drip pan to one end of the opposing scroll sprung hinged arms; struck very crisply with the lion passant mark.


The drip pan is embellished with a subtle bead decorated border to the rim.


The central column is surmounted with an impressive chased decorated sterling silver acorn style finial.


The base of this antique wax jack is fitted with a fine and impressive scrolling handle ornamented with a leaf decorated thumbpiece.


The spreading circular base is encircled with bands of tooled decoration and an impressive applied gadroon decorated border to the rim.


The base is supported by three fine and impressive claw and ball feet with bifurcating sockets.


The wax jack retains the original wax coiled around the original wooden bobbin.


Date: 1770

Condition


This antique wax jack is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional presentation condition.

The applied and tooled decoration is very sharp.

Full hallmarks struck to the underside and lion passant to the handle are all very clear.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this example of Georgian silverware.
