Charles Jackson, London, 1719

Crested for the Family of Spencer, Earls of Sunderland, Althorp





Of heavy gauge silver and usual double ended form, the larger bowl verso crested for the

Family of Spencer (Althorp) :

Out of a ducal coronet or a griffin’s head between two wings expanded argent

gorged with a collar gemel and armed gules


The crest as engraved upon this George I Britannia Standard Silver Marrow Scoop by Charles Jackson
hallmarked London 1719 is that of the family of Spencer.

Given that there are no incidents of peerage such as a coronet shown here,

this marrow scoop was undoubtedly commissioned in all probability

 by a member of the family of the Spencers, Earls of Sunderland.

At the time of the manufacture of this marrow scoop,

Charles Spencer, 3rd Earl of Sunderland was living.

He died some two years later in 1721.

The earl is the six times great grandfather of

Their Royal Highnesses The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Henry of Wales;

his grandson, John Spencer bring created the 1st Earl Spencer in 1765,

the Spencer line from whom descended Diana, Princess of Wales


 Marks : Grimwade #1095, entered 1714
