Sterling Silver Porringer - Antique Charles II (1671)


An exceptional, fine and impressive antique Charles II English sterling silver porringer; part of our collectable silverware collection

SKU A9437

This exceptional antique Charles II sterling silver porringer has a circular rounded form onto a collet base.

The surface of the porringer is embellished with an impressive chased hunting hound to one side and a stag to the other, all amidst large foliate designs and incorporating pinstruck swirl designs.

This English silver porringer is fitted with two impressive cast, leaf decorated S scroll handles with elevated figural shaped thumbpieces.

NOTE: After surviving the Great Fire of London the records at the London Assay office were destroyed by fire in 1681; their catalogues and documentation began again in 1697. However it can be pertained through further research that the attributed maker is possibly John Gibbs, who was free from his apprenticeship work to plateworkers in 1662.

Maker: John Gibbs (Strong Possibility)

Date: 1671

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

The chased decoration is all very sharp.

Full hallmarks struck to the underside of the base are all clear, in keeping with age and location.

Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of antique silverware.
