This exceptional antique George V cast sterling silver presentation table centrepiece has been realistically modelled in the form of a knight on horseback.

The fully armoured knight features a shield on his dexter arm and grasps a flag in his sinister; this flag bears the wording 'Floreat Etona' - May Eton Flourish.

The silver knight is wearing a helmet with a plume to the upper portion and the grille is open to reveal the gentleman's facial features.

The horse features decorative reigns, in addition to a weaponised headdress.

The plateaued surface of this impressive example of antique silverware is embellished with a terrain texture accented with floral designs at the horses feet.

This hallmarked sterling silver knight retains the original and impressive octagonal carved painted wood base/plinth; this shaped base is highly desirable and represents the quality of the piece.

This impressive presentation piece was crafted by the renowned London silversmith C S Harris & Sons Ltd.
