WILLIAM IV SILVER MELON FORM NUTMEG GRATER

Marked JT thrice

 

 

Of heavy gauge silver, in the ovoid ribbed melon form, the cover engraved with a contemporary script

MWC with flourishes, opening to a hinged blue steel grater with storage compartment below.

 

Marked JT in a rectangular punch - once on cover and twice on base rim. 

Several makers of the day used the same JT (without pellet) mark.

My suspicion is that the grater is of either Birmingham or provincial origin :

John Tongue, Birmingham, registered 1832 (small worker for decanter labels, spectacle frames and the like);

 John Townsend, Dublin, 1811-18 (decanter label);

John Townsend, Cape of Good Hope Colony, active 1824-41;

John Twenlow, Chester, (pair of salts and a rattle), 1827-8;

John Telford, Newcastle, 1839 (registry)

 

 

Condition : Excellent; hinges in good working order without splits or repairs; the grater quite nice

 

1.75" Long / .7 oz.
