If you really love a particular type of silver such as this pair of silver plate wine coolers you will want to show it to friends and family and your enjoyment will translate to them too. 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. Happily here at Regent Antiques we are vigilant and provide only the finest unblemished silver pieces and if something like re-plating has taken place we will tell you. We always provide you with ample photographs of our silver items so you can see particularly what condition they are in.

Please note that silver tarnishes and you will have to take care of it by polishing it relatively frequently. It's a good notion to clean it with a long term polish and then then try to show it in a relatively airtight cupboard if appropriate. This will keep it glistening for the greatest possible time. 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.

Antique Regency Old Sheffield Silver Plated Tray C 1820 with Cavendo Tutus Crest

Antique Regency Old Sheffield Silver Plated Tray C 1820 with Cavendo Tutus Crest

This is a magnificent and very large antique Regency English Old Sheffield silver plated tray, circa 1820 in date. This Old Sheffield tray is of rectangular shape and features a deep-set border which is richly decorated with exquisite scalloped shells, acanthus leaves and c scrolls, typical of the Regency period. The tray has two elegant and large handles, one to each end, with matching acanthus leaves and c scrolls decoration. The body of the tray is finely chased with floral and foliate decoration against a textured background. The centre of the tray has a family crest and the Latin motto: 'Cavendo Tutus' which translates as "Look before you leap", this motto belonged to Chatsworth House, the home of the Duke of Devonshire. I have had the crest researched:   The Marital Arms of Cruikshank and Purrier    The armorial bearings as engraved upon this Regency Old Sheffield Plate TwoHandled Tray dating to circa 1820 are those of the family of Cruikshank impaling Purrier.  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.  They may be blazoned as follows:    Arms:    (on the dexter) Argent three boars’ heads couped sable within a bordure engrailed of the second  (for Cruikshank)     (on the sinister) Argent a chevron vert between in chief two pears of the last and in base on a mount a pear tree proper fructed or a chief ermines (for Purrier)    Crest: A dexter hand in armour grasping a dagger in pale proper (for Cruikshank)    Motto: Cavendo tutus [Safe by being cautious] (for Cruikshank)       These armorial bearings undoubtedly commemorate the marriage of Patrick Cruikshank of Glenskinno in the County of Forfar and of Richmond in the West Indies1 (born 17th March 1800 died 1875) and Charlotte Maria Purrier (baptised 26th April 1806 died 1886).  Patrick and Charlotte were married on the 16th February 1832 at the Parish Church of St Marylebone, Marylebone in the County of Middlesex.2  Patrick was the eldest son of James Cruikshank of Langley Park in the County of Forfar and his wife, Margaret Helen Gerard, the daughter of The Reverend Alex Gerard, DD, of King’s College, Aberdeen; whilst Charlotte was the daughter of John Vincent Purrier, of Kingston upon Thames in the County of Surrey3 and his wife, Charlotte Maria Thomas.         The beauty, quality and craftsmanship of this tray, make it truly second to none. Condition: In excellent condition with no dings, dents or signs of repair and only minor signs of wear commensurate with age and use. Please see photos for confirmation.

Don't forget that in the silver antiques world a small amount of restoration is appropriate where a small ding or dent may be carefully eliminated. But be mindful of over plating, lead or silver solder, repaired seams, holes, erased inscriptions, patches and later enhancements or decorations. All of these are unacceptable for a piece of great antique silver. The good news is that here at Regent Antiques we are vigilant and offer only the finest unblemished silver pieces and where things like re-plating has taken place we will tell you.

It's a wise course of action to clean it with a long term polish and then then try to display it in a relatively airtight cupboard if you can. This will keep it gleaming for the longest possible time. If you look after it well this silver plated tray will basically last forever.

Antique Victorian Silver & Crystal Claret Jug Ewer W & G Sissons 1864

An antique Victorian Silver & Crystal Claret Jug by W & G Sissons and dating from 1864.

The crystal itself is engraved with numerous cut stars and has a star cut base. Although this piece is of modest proportions, standing as it does just 10 inches tall, (26 cm), it will make a big impression on everyone who sees it. Quality prevails and this is without doubt a quality item that you can either choose to use for its intended purpose or alternatively place on display to delight your friends and guests.
