Rare and now infrequently seen GEORGE III sterling silver dish wedge with a simplistic and elegant design.
Maker: John Emes. London 1801.

Dish wedges were used to lift the edge of a platter causing the meat juices to flow to the well.
The Emes were a successful silversmith family and John Emes went into partnership with Henry Chawner in 1796. After the retirement of Henry Chawner the business was mostly managed by John Emes.
The full set of hallmarks and maker's mark are clearly stamped on the underside end of the wedge.

Length: 4.2 inches (10.67cm)
Height: 1.7 inches (4.3cm)
Width: 2.4 inches (6.1cm)
Weight: 1.35 troy ounces (42.12 grams)
Condition: Extremely good with the inevitable signs of wear on the cartouche.
