A Very Fine George II Silver Salver London 1743 by John Robinson
A Very Fine George II Silver Salver of circular form with shaped shell and acanthus leaf border.

The whole standing on four scroll and leaf decorated feet.
Marked to the reverse for London 1743 by John Robinson.
This is an exceptionally fine early Georgian salver in absolutely original condition of superb colour and patina. The decoration is crisp and unworn and the hallmarks clearly struck. It stands flat and true on a tabletop and is of the very highest quality silversmithing, very good weight and gauge. A truly exceptional piece.
