Lot Report


See Gentle, Belinda, Domestic Metalwork, 1640-1820, The Antique Collector's Club, 1994, p. 273: “It is a misconception that the production of silver plated brass rather than solid silver was based entirely on economic factors alone. The craftsmanship of these pieces is invariably of an extremely high standard, and the use of hallmark-like stamps would suggest the likely involvement of silversmiths in their manufacture.”
