Pap Boat, 1721 William Fleming
Pap Boat - London 1721 (Britannia Standard) by William Fleming - 10.5cm long; 56g - FG/6687
Taking the usual boat-shaped form,this is a very early example of a silver pap boat; mostly they date from the later 18th century. This example is marked to the inside base with a clear set of Britannia Standard hallmarks (more pure than Sterling standard) and has a discreet "B" engraved to the underside. This rare Georgian baby feeding vessel is in fine condition throughout.
