This is a fine, heavyweight cast sterling silver tripod salver in elegant George II style, its gadrooned border in strongly detailed English rococo curves and shells. The central field is emblazoned with contemporary crested and festooned arms; the feet are in finely crafted Spanish style. Made in London in 1765 to 1766, and weighing approximately 17 ounces, it bears the hallmark of Thomas Hannam and John Crouch (or John Carter). The condition is very fine, with no damage and wear that is consistent with its age. Diameter is approximately 10 inches.
