This exceptionally fine example has a fig shaped bowl and hexagonal stem which terminates in a large baluster seal top, beautifully chased with lobes and palely gilded. The top of the seal is scratch engraved with a set of contemporary initials. The bowl is marked with the leopard's head crowned and the other three hallmarks are well struck on the stem. This is one of the finest seal tops we have offered with a good bowl and colour and comes from this very desirable reign. The maker's mark is illustrated in Jackson's " Silver & Gold Marks" on page 100 and it would appear that he was a specialist spoon maker, as all of the items cited, which bear his mark, are spoons.

Length: 6.5 inches, 16.25cm.
