Antique George III Sterling Silver 'Stork' Ribbon Pullers/Threaders
Offered by AC Silver
The pullers have been realistically modelled in the form of a stork and are embellished with chased decoration detailing the bird's plumage and features.
One finger grip is fitted with a chased decorated four claw foot, allowing the pullers to sit securely perpendicular.
The underside of the claw foot/stand is embellished with a contemporary bright cut engraved initial 'S'.
The beak/blades of these impressive silver ribbon pullers have a serrated surface.
This impressive Georgian piece was crafted by the renowned London silversmiths William Eley, William Fearn & William Chawner; original examples of this age and quality are becoming increasingly scarce.
* More commonly found in continental silver, antique ribbon pullers were functionally used to thread ribbon through the eyelets incorporated in baby clothing.
Length from back of finger grip to tip of beak 9.7cm/3.8"
Width across claw foot 3.4cm/1.3"
1.2 troy ounces/36.4g
