Very attractive and beautifully made George II sterling silver butter shell. Made in London in 1757 by Henry Herbert.
The shell is perfectly formed in the mid 18th century manner. The full set of hallmarks are struck on the reverse of the base of the shell and are very crisp and clear.

The first mark of Henry Herbert was entered on the 18th January 1734. A Huguenot, possibly from Le Mans, he was Subordinate Goldsmith to the King from 1736-40.

This shell is a very versatile piece of silver.
