GEORGE II SILVER SALVER

John Robinson II, London, 1746-7

 

 

 

 

The round salver with a piecrust border surrounded by a cast border of grape clusters alternating with shells,

the field center with an original coat of arms for the families of Harvey and Ives, within a rocaille cartouche :

 

On the dexter : Or on a chief indented sable three crescents argent a mullet for difference (for Harvey)

On the sinister : Agent a chevron between three Moor's heads couped sable (for Ives)

 

surrounded by chased c-scrolls with diapering and shells, around flowerheads and foliage,

raised on three lion’s paw feet; also with scratch weight verso 27 : 1

 

These armorial bearings undoubtedly commemorate the marriage of Thomas Harvey,

of Norwich in the County of Norfolk

 (born 1711 baptized 19th May 1711 died 16th July 1772) and Lydia Ives (born 1718 died 1804),

daughter of Jeremiah Ives and Alice Ives née Black, of Norwich in the same county.

Thomas and Lydia were married on the 9th October 1739 at the Parish Church of St. Helens, Norwich.

Thomas Harvey was a leading merchant in Norwich, son of John Harvey.

Thomas served on the city council and was appointed Sheriff of Norwich in 1740;

some two years later he became the Alderman of the Ward of North Conisford on the 13th October 1742

and served as Mayor in 1748. When he died in 1772, he was buried in the Harvey family vault

in the Parish Church of St. Clements, Norwich, where a mural monument remains to his memory

and that of his wife and family. His wife Lydia survived Thomas by some 32 years dying in 1804 aged 86 years.

Thomas and Lydia had three sons from their marriage.
