Condition


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

The chased decoration is all very sharp and the bright cut engraved crest is crisp.

Full hallmarks struck to the underside of the caster and part hallmarks, consisting of maker's mark and lion passant, to the sleeve of the cover are all very clear; the hallmarks are struck deeply due to the exceptional gauge of silver.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this example of Georgian silverware.
