SCARCE GEORGE II SILVER ONE-PIECE APPLE CORER

T (device) H Crowned, London, mid-18th century

 

Scarce George II Silver One Piece Apple Corer,  London, c1750

 

The pre-1750s one-piece form of good gauge silver and usual cylindrical form,
the blade of conforming half-circular shape,
the central girdle and bulbous end with incised concentric lines;
in usual fashion, marked only to the junction between corer and haft with T (device) H beneath a crown :

 

 

 

(This mark has been recorded on a decanter label and skewer, in 1764, but not yet attributed).

 

Apple Corers :
Silver apple corers first appeared during the 1680s. At that time and for the next 70 years,

they were cast from a long cylinder of silver cut half way down the shaft to form the cylindrical corer blade.
(The maker's mark is usually on the dividing plate only).
Some rare examples have a compartment at the end where spice may have been kept.
About 1750, the design changed to travel more easily in the pocket, the blade unscrewing and fitting into the handle.

This earlier single piece form is actually a somewhat rare survivor.
