This Georgian piece of silverware has been used and polished through its life and has natural even wear to the figures features, in keeping with age.

Full hallmarks struck to the rim of the underside of the taper stick are all very clear; the first portion of the maker's mark has wear in keeping with age, but remains legible.


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