The Taperstick has a square base with a bold gadrooned border. Each corner is decorated with very unusual flowing foliate scrolls and the base is also engraved with a contemporary Crest, issuing from the Coronet of a Duke. Unusually, the main shaft is plain in design and rises to a capital decorated with acanthus spears. The removable nozzle has a raised scalloped edge decorated with beading. The Taperstick is in excellent condition, and is possibly a unique design, as we cannot find any similar in our library. John Carter II supplied silver to both George III and George IV, when Prince of Wales.

Height: 7.8 inches, 19.5cm.
Base Diameter: 4.6 inches, 11.5cm
