GEORGE III SILVER “ONSLOW” BASTING SPOON

Thomas & William Chawner, London, 1768

 

 

 

Of heavy gauge silver, the slender tapering shaft with a cast overscrolled terminal, the oval  bowl with a single drop heel,

 angled joint visible verso on the shaft; marks slightly rubbed  but legible, with maker’s mark partially cast over

 

Condition : Excellent

 

The Onslow pattern was made in the mid-18th century, with many 19th century conversions, and is still being copied by

modern silversmiths.  The original Onslow is made in a slightly different method: the overscrolled grooved handle, resembling

somewhat the turned "paperscroll" decoration on early Georgian chairs, is cast separately and applied with an angled scarf joint

to the shaft.  This joint, usually visible when tarnished or breathed upon, is not present on the conversions from other flatware or

later copies.  Early true Onslow silver, perhaps named after Arthur Onslow (1691-1768), speaker of the House of Commons,

is somewhat rare, quite beautiful, and blends well with the Hanoverian and Old English patterns of silver flatware
