GEORGE III SILVER PIERCED SERVER

Charles Aldridge & Henry Green

London, 1773

 

 

 

 

Of the very desirable triangular pierced and bright cut form, the blade pierced with foliate scrolls and circles with

finely gadrooned edge, floriform attachment to a double C-scroll shaft; original turned wood handle with finely

engraved collar at ferrule

 

Condition: Excellent; without breaks or repairs to the piercing; crisp marks;

minor slight bend to one corner of the blade (visible in images);

the wooden handle with two small chips to the collar at ferrule

 

The second half of the 18th century saw the introduction of a trowel-form pierced server, used at the time for both

fish and pudding.  The workmanship on the early examples is rather extraordinary - with intricate foliate-cut designs

to the triangular blade, further embellished with bright cutting.  They are now used for serving a great variety of foods -

most particularly pastries.  These triangular forms are the most sought after of the fish serving pieces.
