RARE WILLIAM IV SILVER BUTTER TUB ON STAND
Quite scarce, the round shallow bucket with engraved linework as staves, sided by two short rectangular handles,
the similarly engraved lid mounted with cast recumbent cow-form finial, with original matching silver underplate, also
with engraved stave linework; marked on tub, lid verso and finial, and on underplate
Note: Charles Fox is considered one of the best of the 19th century makers, having consistent high quality.
He was one of the last of individualist plateworkers prior to the Victorian era of over-embellishment. The
butter tubs with silver receptacles were almost exclusive to him, most having glass dishes.
Condition: Excellent; marks slightly rubbed but clear; one small pin-point ding to top
