Antique Pair Sterling Silver Salvers by John Carter 1772 18th C

Antique Pair Sterling Silver Salvers by John Carter 1772 18th C

  This is a wonderful pair of English 18th Century antique sterling silver salvers by the  renowned silversmith John Carter. They each have hallmarks for London 1772, the makers mark of John Carter and are typical of his work with the exquisitely detailed rims, ball and claw feet and the superb engraved decoration. They each bear a beautifully engraved coat of arms and the crest of the Terry Family, which I have researched:   The Arms of the Family of Terry The arms as engraved upon this Pair of George III English Sterling Silver Footed Salvers by John Carter hallmarked London 1872 are those of the family of Terry. They may be blazoned as follows:  Arms: Sable on two bars or three cross crosslets two and one (……?) and issuant from the bar in chief a demi-lion rampant Crest: A boar’s head erased and erect Motto: E cruce leo [From the cross a lion] The arms as engraved upon this pair of salvers certainly have characteristics with arms borne by another family and branch thereof named Terry who hailed from the County of Cork in Ireland. Notably the use of the three cross crosslets and the demilion rampant, but in a different placement upon the arms. The crest seen here is also at a variance with the other Terry arms where a demi-lion rampant is used. Upon an exhaustive examination of other sources, together with the present evidence, I believe that the family who had the salvers in their possession undoubtedly bore these arms without authority a fact that often occurred in the 18th and 19th Centuries and at other periods. Many families bore armorial bearings that they assumed and used for many generations in that they either consciously or unconsciously eschewed an approach to The College of Arms in England, the Ulster King of Arms in Ireland, or the Court of the Lord Lyon in Scotland to legitimatise such arms.   This superb pair of salvers will look superb in your silver collection.   Condition: In really excellent condition with clear hallmarks and no dings, dents or signs of repair. Please see photos for confirmation.

Antique Paul Storr George III Sterling Silver Salver 1811 19th Century

Antique Paul Storr George III Sterling Silver Salver 1811 19th Century

This is a wonderful English antique George III sterling silver 10 inch salver, by the world famous silversmith Paul Storr. It has clear hallmarks for London 1811 and the makers mark of Paul Storr. It is typical of his work with the raised gadrooned rim with anthemion on shells and with anthemion at intervals, on four fabulous foliate bracket feet. The salver is engraved with a crest and motto and the underside is later engraved Charlotte J. Parke from C. J. Parke, March 1893' The centre is engraved with a crest above a  motto 'True and Fast' and I have researched this crest: The Crest of Parke The crest as engraved upon this George III English Sterling Silver Footed Salver by Paul Storr hallmarked London 1811 is that of the family of Parke. It may be blazoned as follows: Crest: A stag’s head couped sable holding in the mouth a key or Motto: True and fast The family of Parke originally hailed from the County of Cumberland in the northeast of England1 later settling in the County of Dorset at Henbury House, Sturminster Marshal, near Wimborne. Given the evidence of the inscription found on the underside of the salver ‘Charlotte J. Parke from C. J. Parke, March 1893’ it was undoubtedly at one time in the possession of Charles Joseph Parke (died 9th March 1893) of Henbury House aforesaid and gifted to Charlotte Josephine Parke (baptised 4th January 1857 died 2nd January 1941) his third daughter by his wife, Ellen Mary Ethelston. I would venture the following hypothesis that the salver was bequeathed to Charlotte in her father’s will that was granted probate at London on the 20th May 1893. The ‘March 1893’ of the inscription acts as a remembrance of the month of the death of her father. It was noted that Charlotte’s father left an estate worth some £66,892, 19 shillings and one pence, a very considerable sum in the last decade of the 19th Century and even thereafter. Charlotte never married and was living at the time of her death at The Coppice, Sixpenny Handley in the County of Dorset. Her will was proved for probate at Llandudno on the 25th March 1941. She left an estate worth £18,866, 10 shillings and 4 pence. Again, a comfortable sum in 1941. See the photo of Henbury House, Sturminster Marshal, near Wimborne, Co. Dorset. The former seat of the Parke family. The house was destroyed by fire, the remains of which were demolished in the 1990's. There is no mistaking its unique quality and design, which is sure to make it a treasured piece by any discerning collector.   Condition: In excellent condition with clear hallmarks and no dings, dents or signs of repair. Please see photos for confirmation.

Antique Paul Storr Large William IV Silver Tray Salver by 1837 19th Century

Antique Paul Storr Large William IV Silver Tray Salver by 1837 19th Century

It has clear hallmarks for London 1837 the makers mark of Paul Storr and is also engraved Storr & Mortimer 36, they were Goldsmiths and Jewellers to Her Majesty’ (1822-1839). It is typical of his work with the octafoil shape and the exquisitely detailed foliate and acorn rim. It is raised on four delightful foliate and shell scroll feet. The centre is engraved with a shield shaped coat of arms encompassing the lion rampant which I have had researched:   The Arms of the Family of King The arms as engraved upon this William IV English Sterling Silver Footed Salver by Paul Storr hallmarked London 1837 are those of the family of King. They may be blazoned as follows: Arms: Sable a lion rampant between three crosses formy fitchy argent Undoubtedly this salver was in the possession of a gentleman who was member of a family bearing the name of King. There are a number of variants of these armorial bearings being borne by King families. Very often the lion is of a different tincture but the field of the shield is invariably remains ‘sable’. Similar arms and crest were recorded by Sir Edward Bysshe, Clarenceux King of Arms in his Visitation of the County of Kent of 1663 to the family of King, of Bromley. The tinctures of both arms and crest of King, of Bromley were slightly different to those engraved upon this tureen in that the Visitation family’s arms were ‘Sable a lion rampant ermine between three crosses paty fitchy or’ 1 and the crest ‘A lion’s gamb erect and erased sable holding a cross paty fitchy or’(see illustration below). These arms and crest were granted by Sir Edward Walker, Garter King of Arms on the 20th February 1660 – 61; and yet another Kentish family of King, of Bellevue who were created Baronets within the Baronetage of Great Britain in 1792 bore for their arms ‘Sable a lion rampant erminois between three crosses paty fitchy or’. Their crest being the same as the family of King, of Bromley.   There is no mistaking its unique quality and design, which is sure to make it a treasured piece by any discerning collector. Please see potos of the 2nd Baronet Timothy Shelley, 1753-1844 and Castle Goring, his home.   Condition: In excellent condition with clear hallmarks and no dings, dents or signs of repair.

It is typical of his work with the octafoil shape and the exquisitely detailed reeded  rim, and it is raised on four delightful foliate and shell scroll feet.

These armorial bearings denote the marshalling of a marital coat showing the arms of the husband over the entire surface of the shield, whilst the arms of the wife (as an heraldic heiress) are placed on a small shield (known as an escutcheon of pretence) centrally on the husband’s arms. They may be blazoned as follows:  Arms: Quarterly 1st and 4th Azure crusily of cross crosslets a cross moline voided or (for Knollys) 2nd and 3rd Gules on a chevron argent three roses of the field barbed proper (for Knollys) over all an escutcheon of pretence Or on a pile engrailed sable between two fountains barry wavy of six argent and azure three cross crosslets of the first (for Hallifax) Crest: An elephant argent [differenced with a mullet1 ] (for Knollys) Motto: In utrumque paratus [Prepared for either] (for Knollys) These armorial bearings undoubtedly commemorate the marriage of The Honourable and Reverend Francis Knollis2 (baptised 3rd January 1743 died 27th February 1826), 1 The cadency mark for a third son of a family. 2 Francis appears to have preferred this spelling of his family’s surname.

It has hallmarks for London 1804, the makers mark of Paul Storr on each part and it bears a stunning coat of arms over a coronet which I have had researched:   The Crests of Parkyns, Baron Rancliffe The crests as engraved upon this George III English Sterling Silver Tureen by Paul Storr hallmarked London 1804 are those borne by Parkyns, Baron Rancliffe. They may be blazoned as follows: Crests: (Dexter) Out of a ducal coronet or a demi-eagle displayed azure billety of the first each billet charged with an ermine spot sable (for Parkyns) (Sinister) Out of a ducal coronet or a demi-swan rousant proper collared and lined (……?) holding the beak (……?) (for possibly Isham) The crests are ensigned with a baron’s coronet. Given the date of hallmarking of this tureen it was undoubtedly in the possession of George Augustus Henry Anne Parkyns (born 10th June 1785 died 1st November 1850), the 2nd Baron Rancliffe and 4th Baronet of Bunny in the County of Nottinghamshire.  George was the only son of Thomas Boothby Parkyns, 1st Baron Rancliffe and his wife, Elizabeth Anne James.

George also served as an equerry to his godfather the Prince of Wales. As his family’s peerage was one in the Peerage of Ireland it allowed him to sit in the British House of Commons as a Member of Parliament within a period of twenty-four years of the following seats: Minehead (1806 – 07) and Nottingham (1812 – 29 and 1826 – 30). Upon George’s death in 1850, the Irish Barony of Rancliffe fell into extinction for the want of a male heir.

The dome cover has a stunning ornate  heart pendant foliate handle and is engraved with the crest.  It is raised on a circular plinth base with beautiful reeded decoration.  Please see picture of George Augustus Henry Anne Parkyns and photo of his home, Bunny Hall, which was built circa 1725.
