Recently out of long term family storage, a stunning set of late 18th c. Sterling silver plates / chargers by Henry Chawner, London, 1792, George III duty marks. The twelve plates are in excellent condition with knife scratches appropriate for their age. One plate has a slight dent which I've tried to show in the last 2 pictures.To my knowledge, they have never been restored. Or over polished, showing clear hallmarks and engraving. A charming duck is engraved above the Latin standard, "Often in difficulties, never in fear". The indented gadroon edge is beautifully realized, the skill of the silversmith being obvious.
These solid silver plates are substantial in weight and heft. A rare opportunity, authenticity guaranteed.
