A small George II cream boat made in London circa 1750 by the illustrious silversmith Edward Wakelin.With a plain wavy edge and on three hoof feet.Engraved with a stag's head crest.The form is the same as larger sauceboats, but the size would indicate that this was more likely to be used for cream. The hallmarks are the maker's mark, struck four times. This was done by the manufacturer to simulate the appearance of a full set of hallmarks without sending the object to the assay office, and thus avoiding the duty which would have been payable.
