Guest Book
An exceptionally large British silver salver or tray of circular form, Maker Edward Barton, London 1831. The cast and applied border of shaped foliate pattern. The central plate with a ring of floral engravings.

The tray with 4 legs, also in fine elaborate style.

Size: 44 cm. in diameter and approx. 2 kilograms of sterling silver! (2000 grams or 70-71 ounces).

This is a highly unusual and exceptionally fine salver of massive proportions. Thick robust gauge silver in absolutely original condition with no damage or repair. Clearly struck marks. Very slight wear and a few marks. The definition of the border is crisp as is the engraving.

A very important piece by a premier British silversmith of the time.

Provenance: Gift to the Chairman of the Danish National bank, J.A. Børling, in 1955 (faint engraving on the back), before then in a Danish private Collection.
