The porringer is in a very good condition; there is an old repair to the lower socket of one handle, this does not detract from the aesthetically pleasing appearance.
The hallmarks struck to the upper rim of the body and the maker's mark to the underside all show signs of wear in keeping with age.
Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of Georgian silverware.
