Antique Silver George III Tureen William Bennett 1808 Birchall and Hayne 19th C

Antique Silver George III Tureen William Bennett 1808 Birchall and Hayne 19th C

This is a beautiful antique English George III sterling silver tureen and lid, with hallmarks for London 1808 and the makers mark WB for William Bennett. The tureen is beautiful in its simplicity. There is an engraved crest and a fabulous coat of arms which I have had researched: The Marital Arms of Families of Birchall and Hayne   The arms as engraved upon this George III English Sterling Silver Tureen by William Bennett hallmarked London 1808 are those of Birchall impaling Hayne.  These armorial bearings denote the marshalling of a marital coat showing on the dexter (the heraldic right on the left as you view the piece) the arms of the husband and on the sinister (the heraldic left on the right as you view it) the arms of the wife.  These armorial bearings may be blazoned as follows: Arms: (on the dexter)                        Argent on a chevron between three cross crosslets fitchy sable as many fleurs de lis of the first (for Birchall) (on the sinister)                       Or on a fess gules three bezants in chief a greyhound courant proper (for Hayne) Crest:                                       A lion rampant azure supporting a tree vert (for Birchall) Upon the balance of probability and without any evidence to the contrary these armorial bearings commemorate the marriage of an unnamed gentleman of the Birchall family who hailed from the Counties of Chester and Stafford to an unnamed daughter of a family of the Hayne family around the date of the manufacture and hallmarking of this particular piece.  It is supposed that the Birchalls took their name from Birchill in the County of Cheshire this being the original spelling of the name. The style of the engraving of both arms and crest are contemporary with the date cited.  It is a lovely piece which would be appreciated by both collectors and those who would like to use it at their next dinner party. Condition: In excellent condition with clear hallmarks and no dings, dents or signs of repair. Please see photos for confirmation.

A key matter is the condition of a silver item and how much restoration work has taken place. When picking out silver antiques that are over 200 years old they will probably have what is called a 'patina' which is a combination of the colour and the wear. You cannot expect an old silver article to look like it just came from the workshop - if it does then it has almost certainly been significantly restored which is not the best thing for an item of antique silver. Remember that in the silver antiques world a little bit of restoration is okay where a small ding or dent may be meticulously taken out. But be weary of ‘over plating’, lead or silver solder, repaired seams, holes, erased inscriptions, patches and later enhancements or ornaments. All of these are not acceptable for a piece of great antique silver.

If you look after them well this pair of English silver champagne coolers will basically last forever.

Antique Silver Gilt Chalice Cup by Paul de Lamerie 1745 18th C

Antique Silver Gilt Chalice Cup by Paul de Lamerie 1745 18th C

This exquisite antique silver gilt chalice cup bears the makers mark of the renowned silversmith Paul de Lamerie and hallmarks for London 1745. This George II antique silver chalice has a domed foot and the tall stem with plain beaded knop rises to the bowl which is divided by a wide band. Bearing the mark P.L. in script under a crown over a pellet, this mark was first entered in 1739. The restrained form shown by this wonderful antique silver chalice illustrates that Paul de Lamerie, at the end of his working life, reverted to simple designs, in this case very similar to his earliest chalice for Milton Cleveden. This antique silver gilt chalice cup is in excellent condition with the makers mark showing some signs of rubbing. More About Paul de Lamerie (1688 - 1751) The Victoria and Albert Museum describes Paul de Lamerie as the ‘greatest silversmith working in England in the 18th century’. De Lamerie was born in Hertogenbosch in the Netherlands and was the son of a minor French nobleman. His Huguenot parents left France following the Edict of Fontainebleau in 1685 and his father became an officer in the army of William III of Orange and subsequently moved to London in 1689 during the Glorious Revolution. De Lamerie became an apprentice to a goldsmith of Huguenot origin in 1703 and eventually opened his own workshop in 1713 and became goldsmith to George I in 1716. He worked in partnership with Ellis Gamble who had formerly been the apprentice master of William Hogarth between 1723 and 1728. De Lamerie’s early work was in simple Queen Anne styles following classical French models, but from about 1730 he became noted for his elaborate Rococo style, particularly for the richly-decorated works of an unidentified craftsman, the Maynard Master. He clientele included the Tsarinas Anna and Catherine, Count Aleksey Bobrinsky, Sir Robert Walpole, the Earl of Ilchester, The Earl of Thanet, Viscount Tyrconnel, the Duke of Bedford and other members of the English upper classes. He also did work for John V of Portugal which included a huge silver bathtub lost in the 1755 Lisbon earthquake.
