Date: 1689

Condition


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

The chased decoration is all very sharp in keeping with age.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the porringer are very clear; it is rare to see such clear hallmarks on a piece of this age, often they cannot be deeply struck due to the rounded surface.

The part hallmarks to the upper plateau of the cover were struck before the piece was chased therefore the definition of the marks is lost.


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