A rare early antique silver serving slice with an elegant turned hardwood handle. The pierced silver surface is decorated with foliate scrolls and flowers. Hand engraved to the reverse is a large lion crest crowned. Total weight 189 grams, 6 troy ounces. Length 31.5 cms. Width 11.4 cms. Sterling silver. London 1753. Samuel Courtauld I (Grimwade 2489).
This lovely silver serving piece is in very condition with no damage or restoration. Stamped with a full set of English silver hallmarks; the piercing has removed part of the date letter and makers mark but they can still be made out.

Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
The serving slice was first made in silver in the second half of the 18th century, the early examples having triangular blades, usually pierced with scrolling motifs and often engraved. This serving slice, perfect for cake, was originally intended for serving fish.
