John Tuite is regarded as one of the finest Salver makers in London during this period. He was of Irish descent and was the son of James Tuite of Drogheda, a merchant. He was apprenticed to John Matthews of Dublin and moved to London in 1723. Tuite specialised in the production of some of the finest salvers of the period and had an interesting mark of a Neo-Classical Ewer, with his intials either side. He was working in Litchfield Street when these Salvers were made and died in 1740. This is the third time we have offered this pair for sale over our dealing years and are very pleased to do so again.
Diameter: 8.5 inches, 21.25cm.
Weight: 27oz, the pair.
