Description


This exceptional antique William III English Britannia standard silver* sugar caster has a cylindrical form in the lighthouse style, onto a domed spreading circular foot.


The plain body of the caster is encircled with an applied girdle and embellished with an impressive contemporary bright cut engraved scrolling leaf bordered cartouche incorporating a coat of arms depicting a chevron between three stags passant.


The caster is fitted with the original hallmarked detachable bayonet style cover embellished with pierced and engraved stylised floral spray ornamentation accented with floral buds.


The domed upper portion of the cover is ornamented with a pierced and applied scrolling lobed design, surmounted with an impressive knopped lobed silver finial.


The rim of the cover and the foot are encompassed with an applied gadroon style border below a band of scalloped decoration.


* Britannia Silver - The Britannia silver standard of 958 (95.84% of fine silver), denoted by the icon of the seated Britannia holding an oval shield, was introduced by William III in 1697. This was to indicate the slightly higher standard of silver from sterling silver standard of 925 (92.5% of fine silver).


Date: 1697

Condition


This antique William III sugar caster is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.

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

Full Britannia hallmarks struck to the surface of the body and part hallmarks to the cover, as to be expected, are clear in keeping with age and location; the unequivocal maker’s mark to the body is partially rubbed but remains more legible to the cover.


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

Height to top of finial 18.5cm/7.3"

Diameter of body 6cm/2.4"
