A superb quality Georgian solid silver circular tray or salver with a raised fluted border. The central plate engraved with the crest for the clan Campbell depicting a hand issuing from a cloud holding a signet letter, above an armorial shield, beneath which is the motto:" Optime quod opportune". This means: "What is done opportunely is best". At the circumference of the plate are concentric bands of extremely finely engraved wrigglework lines around a lappet border of foliate engraving. The quality of this work is exceptional. The whole stands on three shaped triangular feet.

Clearly marked to the reverse for London 1806 by Peter and William Bateman.

Diameter: 43cm
Height: 5cm
Weight: 1975g or 69.6 oz
This is a highly unusual and exceptionally fine circular salver, tea or drinks tray in absolutely original condition. The silver is of very good gauge and there is no damage or repair. Usual very minor surface marks from usage. It stands true on a flat surface.
Very good colour and patina.
An example of early George III silversmithing from two of the finest makers.
