Sterling Silver Butter Shells / Dishes - Antique George III (1776)


These exceptional antique George III sterling silver dishes have a plain scallop shell shaped form.

What would be the umbo of the natural shell, forms the impressive plain scrolling handpiece to each dish

Each handpiece is encompassed with an impressive cast applied gadroon decorated border, incorporating a vacant oval cartouche to the upper plateau.

These fine pieces of antique silverware are each supported by two cast silver nautilus style shell feet.

These antique butter dishes are an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.

The cast and applied decoration is very sharp.

Full hallmarks struck to the underside of each dish are all clear in keeping with age and use.

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