The Salver is unusually modelled in the hexagonal form and each of the six sides are decorated with scrolls and Rococo shell details. The flat of this piece is chased with shells, fruit and flowers in the typical Scottish manner. The centre is engraved with a contemporary Armorial, currently being traced, surrounded by a shell, scroll and foliate spray cartouche. The Salver stands on three cast hoof feet and is very well marked on the reverse. Hexagonal Salvers are especially rare, however this is the first example we have ever seen from outside of London. The weight and gauge of this piece is outstanding.

The Arms are those of Clark of Comrie Castle, Co Perth. Comrie Castle had long been an uninhabitable ruin by the time the Clarks acquired it. Andrew Clark Esquire of Comrie and Bonnyside, Co. Perth married Anne, eldest daughter of Robert Campbell Esq of Ardchattan, Co. Argyll, by whom he had four children, including an eldest son and heir, Robert. Andrew Clark died in 1803.

Diameter: 8.25 inches, 20.63cm.
