Salver - Circular with Flat Chased Decoration - London 1837 by John Wellby
YEAR OF MANUFACTURE: 1837
ORIGIN: London, England
MAKER: John Wellby
STOCK CODE: PJ/1752
Made in the year that William IV died and Queen Victoria ascended to the British throne, this lovely-looking 8" diameter antique silver salver is superbly decorated to the central field with a foliate scroll flat chased design. Flat chasing is a superior technique to engraving and involves a chasing hammer and chisel as opposed to a graving tool.
The salver stands on three shell feet and has a handsome shell and scroll border. An intriguing crest featuring two hands holding a man's head is crisply engraved crest to the centre.
This is an excellent early Victorian silver card or waiter tray in superb condition.
