View Catalog

Description

Set of Six George IV Sterling Silver Salt Spoons, hallmarked London, 1829-1830, by William Chawner, in the traditional "King's" pattern, all engraved with the crest and four additionally with the motto of Archibald of Rusland Hall, l. 4-1/4", 5.08 total t. oz.

Condition

Overall Condition: Good. A nice set with no condition issues beyond normal signs of wear: slight wear on the heel, one or two black salt spots on the bowls. Hallmarked (on the reverse of the stem) with: 1) the sterling lion passant, 2) the London leopard's head, 3) the date letter "o" for 1829-1830, 4) the "WC" maker's mark of William Chawner [Grimwade 3070] and 5) the George IV duty mark. Four additionally with tally mark "P", the other two with unidentified tally marks. Marks very good on all, with the maker's mark slightly rubbed on the right on all but one. Engraving good, but note that two crests lack the motto and appear to be in a different hand.
