A Georgian silver salver, London 1786

Item number: 58236

A large George III sterling silver salver,
London 1786 by Henry Chawner

The circular salver standing on four feet, the rim surrounded with pearl rim decoration. The smooth mirror decorated by a central coat of arms with the motto “STET FORTUNA DOMUS” (“May the fortune of our house endure”).
Excellent, large Salver of the 18th century in very good and authentic condition, without repairs or damages. Notable the remarkably well executed engraving of the coat of arms, whose fine quality  shows up in the details like the shading of the pearl edge as well as in the partial shading of the laurel festoons. The beaded decoration of the rim and the feet is not overpolished and still crisp and clear. The tray has been in the possession of a branch of the Irish noble family Lane from the county Roscommon in Ireland.
