An exquisite Hester Bateman embossed and engraved baluster form caster with engraved armorial device and signature Bateman twist finial! This 5.5 inch tall, roughly 2.25 troy ounce caster is effusively embossed and engraved with a cross hatched lid surmounted by a Bateman type twist finial, foliate and scroll body with lion armorial device and engraved "H", and sunburst engraved stepped and beaded base. Unfortunately, it bears a repair to the side of the device, the HB script hallmark to the body and "L" 1786 date mark are partly rubbed and all marks to the lid are effaced. Still, an exceptionally detailed example of Hester Batemen's work.
