This is an exquisite antique George II English silver gilt chalice bearing hallmarks for London 1745 and the makers mark of the world renowned silversmith Paul de Lamerie.
Bearing the maker's mark for Paul de Lamerie, P.L in script under a crown over a pellet, this mark was first entered in 1739.
From a domed foot, the tall stem with plain beaded knop, rises to the bowl which is divided by a wide band.
The restrained form illustrates that at the end of his working life Paul de Lamerie reverted to simple designs, in this case similar to his earliest chalice for Milton Cleveden.
A truly exquisite piece, in excellent condition, that would make a fine addition to any antique silver collection.
In excellent condition, with only slight rubbing of the marks, please see photos for confirmation of condition.
