Georgian Irish Solid Silver Dessert Fork 1770 Hallmarked Dublin Sterling Nr

GEORGIAN IRISH Solid Silver DESSERT FORK 1770 Hallmarked Dublin Sterling NR

OLD CELTIC FEATHER EDGE PATTERN WITH SHOULDERS - V RARE

This is a lovely rare GEORGIAN Irish solid sterling silver dessert fork, which was made inDublin, Irelandin about 1770, probably by the illustrious Irish Georgian silversmith, William Ward at his Great Ship Street workshops. It is in the Old Celtic Feather Edge with Shoulders pattern - the ordinary type with the feather-edging on the shoulders and the handle cut in the same direction. It is engraved to the rear of the handle with a shell and a detailed armorial crest. It is 6 1/2" long and 3/4" across its tines.This piece of cutlery weighs35.0 grams -almost 1 1/4 troy oz.

It is in very good condition for its age with a little less than the usual surface scratching that you'd expect for its age and NO splits or dents- with less than the usual wear and distortion to the tines - SUPERB. It is hallmarked on the reverse of the handle with a rubbed makers mark (probably WW), crowned harp standard mark (Irish sterling silver assay mark), Hibernia mark showing that it was hallmarked in Dublin in about 1770. I have shown the hallmark so that you can make up your own mind. A very rare Georgian IRISH dessert fork in superb condition afteralmost250years. Postage will be 3.50GBP both within the UK and to international destinations.

Please note that the primary postage costs are for second class (or standard parcels service if the postage cost is over 6.00GBP) within the UK or surface mail to international destinations. First class post usually adds 50% to the quoted postage cost while airmail is typically double the cost of surface mail. If you want to know about the timescales and charges by Royal Mail then I suggest you look at http://www.royalmail.com. Please wait for my invoice with postage options that will be sent very soon after the sale finishes!

If you win more than one of my sales, I am happy to combine packaging to reduce postage costs.

Low start and a sale because reserves spoil the fun.
