Sterling Silver Dish Cross - Antique George III (1778)


This exceptional antique Georgian silver dish cross*, in sterling standard, has a plain Regency style form.

Each plain arm of the dish cross terminates with an hexafoil motif and impressive adjustable cast scrolling leg, surmounted with a lobed scrolling appendages encompassed with bead ornamentation; the boss of each leg collars the bar and moves horizontally to allow the frame size to be adjusted to hold either round or oblong dishes.

The plain four spoke frame conjoins at a central circular floral medallion style hinge, encircled with a band of bead decoration.

* The dish cross, often known as a 'spider', was invented in Ireland. The dish cross was utilised in the last half of the 18th century, with the central segment being optimised to hold a spirit burner or candle.

The cast decoration is all very sharp.

Full hallmarks struck to one arm and part hallmarks to the feet are all very clear.

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