A rare & superb George II silver salver of shaped circular form flat sheet set into a cast and pierced floral & beaded scroll gallery. Standing on 3 openwork cast shell, scroll feet.

Hallmarked to the underside for London 1759 by Samuel Courtauld. The pierced gallery is also hallmarked with the lion passant and Courtauld’s marker’s mark.

This is a truly exquisite and important salver by one of the greatest silversmiths of the eighteenth century. The Courtauld family were renowned Huguenot silversmiths, they were highly influential in the evolution of English silver design and technique. Samuel Courtauld was apprenticed to his father Augustin in 1734 and subsequently registered his own mark in 1746 at the Goldsmith’s Hall, SC with the sun in splendour.

A similar example can be seen in the Courtauld collection, and this piece is truly of museum quality.
