The Porringer is of a good large size and is decorated, on the lower half of the main body, with alternate lobes and flutes. The upper section displays a protruding lobed band and various bands of punched foliate motifs. The front of the main body is most unusual engraved with a Hare Hunt, with the inscription, J*S HILAM, between the dog and the hare. The reverse is engraved with a set of initials on an oval disc, surrounded by a cartouche of scrolls, scale work and acanthus foliage. The Porringer has two cast beaded "S" scroll handles. This piece is fully marked on the side of the main body and shows Green's interesting mark of a G containing a small letter r. This is the first time we have seen such a piece engraved with a hunting scene, which has been executed to the highest standard, considering the early date.

Height: 4.5 inches, 11.25cm.
Length, handle to handle: 7.5 inches, 7.5 inches, 18.75cm.
