13" Salver, 1751 William Peaston
Salver - Circular with Pie Crust Border - London 1751 by William Peaston - 34cm diameter; 1160g - NV/1488
William Peaston was a top quality, specialist silver salver maker and this is a particularly fine example of his wares.
Measuring 13" in diameter, it has an imposing presence and a hefty weight of over 37 tr.oz. A major bonus is that the surface has never been engraved, plus there are no dings and dents that so often blight Georgian salvers and waiter trays.
This large George II period salver has a nicely made scroll mount interspersed with shells and stands on three cast, knurl feet. It remains in fine antique condition with a good patina.
