FINE EARLY GEORGE II SQUARE SILVER SALVER
John Tuite, London, 1729
Arms of Chaundler (Also of American Chandler*)
Of heavy gauge silver and desirable square shape with canted and shaped corners
having stepped borders, the plain field centering arms for the family of Chaundler :
They may be blazoned as follows:
Arms: Chequy argent and gules on a bend engrailed sable three lions passant or
Crest: A pelican in her piety sable nest vert
the whole raised on four over-scrolling feet
These arms in all probability belong to a descendant of the family of Chaundler,
who were recorded in the Heralds' Visitation of the County of Hampshire and the Isle of Wight
in the years 1530, 1575 and 1622 – 34 found within the Harleian Manuscript 1544, folio 124.
This four generation pedigree is headed by John Chaundler, of Hyde Barton
in the County of Southampton (i.e. Hampshire).
The family name was also spelt on occasion as 'Chandler' and it is known the family
is found in other counties of South-West England, notably the Counties of Wiltshire and Gloucestershire
which are found to the West and North-West of Hampshire respectively.
Other authorities cite a family of Chandler bearing similar arms,
the only difference being is the bend is not engrailed as shown on this Salver, but plain.
*American Interest - Chandler : Shown below as two examples of these
American arms of Chandler. One an armorial bookplate of Gardner Chandler
engraved by the famous silversmith Paul Revere II

Condition : Excellent, with crisp marks and well preserved engraving to the armorial;
extremely heavy gauge salver, having no signs of repair to the upper surface;
several expected very minor surface dings and light scratches appropriate to age and usage;
sits level on the table; silver tool marks and roughness to the rim verso that appear to be in the making.
