The Salver is broad rectangular in form and stands on four beautiful cast panel feet decorated with wheat ears and anthemion motifs. The stepped rim rises to a cast egg and dart border interspersed with unusual triple Rococo shells flanked by oak leaves and acorns. The centre is finely engraved with a contemporary Armorial, with Crest above, surrounded by a shell, scroll and floral spray cartouche. The Arms and Crest are those of the Toms family of Warwickshire, implaing those of the extremely ancient and eminent Lancashire family of Shuttleworth, sometime of Gawthorpe Hall.

John Crouch II was the son of the famous salver maker John Crouch I. The quality of John II's work is far superior to that of his father and is very scarce. His designs are always unusual, some possibly unique, and the quality of production is of the finest standard. The Salver is very well marked and has an excellent colour. This is the first time we have come across this specific design, a highly desirable piece.
