* 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: 1719

Condition


This antique pepper is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.

Full hallmarks struck to the underside of the base are very clear.

The hallmark to the cover has not been struck precisely and is illegible, as often the case with pierced examples.


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