Favourite Item
A superb rare George I Britannia silver caster of octagonal form, the bayonet fitted cover with scroll piercing and a 'Bun & Knop' finial.

Hallmarked John Barnard I, London 1716.

Hallmarks to the underside are clearly struck with the date letter partially over-striking the lion's head erased, Britannia and the marker's mark have good definition. Lion's head erased visible to the cover with some rubbing.

The bayonet fitting is highly unusual in a caster of this period as this style had changed to a push fit during the end of Queen Anne's reign.

Height: 6 3/4 inches (17 cm)

Width at the widest point: 2 1/2 inches (6.5 cm)

Weight 224g or 7.2ozT (7.9oz)
This is a superb example of the highly collectable & rare bayonet fitting octagonal casters produced in the early eighteenth century in wonderful condition.
