Lot 0006
A pair of George II silver trencher salts of octagonal sided form, hallmarked Edward Wood, London 1743, length of base measuring 3 1/4 inches (8.2 cm). Together with a small late Victorian silver funnel, hallmarked Sampson Mordan & Co., London 1896. Weight 3.61 ozt (112.3 grams).


All three pieces display general surface scratches, marks and wear commensurate with the age and use. There is some quite heavy tarnishing to the salts and they would benefit from a clean and polish. Various small solder repairs, clearly visible to the underside of both. Minor dints and bumps and some heavier marks to some areas. The hallmarks appear rubbed and partly distorted but are still legible. The metal of the funnel feels quite thin, some dints and bumps and creases around the rims. The hallmarks appear rubbed but legible.
