Description


These fine George II sterling silver casters have a baluster shaped form onto a circular spreading foot.


This original antique pair consists of a large and small caster, both embellished in the same style.


Each caster is encircled with plain girdles below a contemporary engraved crest of a stag statant below an earl's coronet and supported by two cupidesque figures.


The Georgian casters each retains the original domed hallmarked push fit cover ornamented with bands of pierced decoration.


The covers are surmounted with impressive tiered silver finials.


These fine antique sterling silver sugar casters are exceptional examples of their type, and have a lovely feel while in the hand.


Date: 1728

Condition


These Georgian casters are an exceptional gauge of silver, fine quality and in excellent condition.

Full hallmarks struck to the underside of each base and part hallmarks struck to one cover are all very clear; the maker's mark to the second cover is rubbed.

The maker's mark struck to the base of the smaller caster overlaps the duty hallmark, though this does not detract from the general quality of the marks.


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