The centre engraved with an armorial beneath a crown. The whole standing on four scrolling leaf capped feet.
Marked to the underside for London 1738 by specialist salver maker John Tuite.
This is a large and impressive early Georgian silver salver in absolutely original unrestored and undamaged condition. The decoration and armorial are obviously contemporary with the piece and as a result are slightly worn as are the undersides of the feet. The hallmarks are clearly struck and absolutely legible. The piece stand stands true on a tabletop and is of a wonderful colour and patina.
