SOLD - Set of Four Sterling Silver Platters - Antique George II

Description


This sterling silver set consists of four antique meat platters crafted in two sizes, each has an oval incurved shaped form.


The raised border of each George II piece is embellished with the bright cut engraved initials ‘CM’ to one side and a crest depicting a heraldic tiger passant holding in the dexter paw a cross moline*, to the other.


The incurved shaped rim of each platter is ornamented with an applied gadroon decorated border.


The oval well of each platter is plain and unembellished.


The underside of each platter retains the original scratch weight in addition to the full hallmarks; as to be expected the measured weights have subtly diminished in keeping with age.


* This crest, in addition to the accompanying monogram 'CM', determines the strong probability that these platters were in the possession of Sir Capel Molyneux, the 3rd Baronet of Castle Sillon in the County of Armagh (1717 - 1797).

Further detailed information available on request.


Date: 1758

Condition


These antique meat platters are a very good gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in excellent condition.

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

Full hallmarks struck to the underside are all very clear.


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