Exceptionally Fine George III Drinks Salver, London, 1781, Wakelin & Taylor



This exceptionally fine George III antique sterling silver Salver was made in London in 1781 by the Royal Silversmiths, Wakelin & Taylor. The Salver is of an unusual size and is oval in form. The raised border is beautifully decorated with flat fluting and the rim with beading. This combination was widely used in the designs of Wakelin & Taylor. The Salver stands on four cast, fluted, legs with ball feet. The centre of the Salver is engraved with a contemporary shield shaped Armorial, with Crest and Motto "Sine Tremore" above, all engraved in the Scottish manner. The Salver is in excellent condition and is of the finest quality as would be expected from these silversmiths who were patronised by King George III and his son, the Prince of Wales, later King George IV. This salver would be ideal for serving drinks or standing a decanter and glasses on. The Arms, Motto and Crest are those of Galbraith, a Scottish family originating, apparently, in Dunbartonshire. The inescutcheon of pretence depicts the Arms of Parker. Measures: Length: 16 inches, 40cm. Width: 11.75 inches, 2938cm. Weight: 41oz.
