Right Example




Each small waiter or salver with a scroll and shell border surrounding the arms or Custance

within  a contemporarily flat-chased rococo and diapered band, raised on three scroll feet


Arms : Or, an eagle displayed, gu, charged on the breast with a star of six points

Crest :  a demi-eagle displayed, on the breast a star of 6 points, as in the arms. 


Custance is first noted in Norfolk, 16th century, where Robert Custance (d. 1549) possessed estates.  The use

of a  cartouche, foliate mantling and lack of helmet indicates ownership possibly by a female or clergy.


Condition : Excellent; wear appropriate to age and use; no repairs to feet or mounting;

Small salvers were used just as the name indicates - to serve food and drink, and also to empty the remains

from the table and glasses.  Collectability depends upon weight and condition, and whether they retain

the original arms, many of which have been removed.
