These exceptional antique Georgian sterling silver waiters have a classic plain square form with shaped corners.
The surface of each waiter is embellished with a fine and impressive contemporary bright cut engraved crest* of a Saracen's head affronty couped at the shoulders wreathed about the temples issuing therefrom three ostrich feathers.
The raised borders are ornamented with an applied moulded decoration to the rims.
The waiters are each supported by four impressive hoof style feet.
Such exceptional pairs of antique sterling silver waiters are becoming increasingly scarce to locate.
* The armorial bearings pertain to the Warburton family, of Arley in the County of Cheshire. Read this items heraldic identification report.
