RARE GEORGIAN STERLING SILVER SAUCEPAN / BRANDY WARMER, JOHN ROBINS, LONDON, 1815
I am quite pleased to offer this rare saucepan or brandy warmer with attached hinged lid and original wooden handle. This form may have been used to serve melted butter as well.
The piece has an elegant period hand engraved crest consisting of a crown and an upper case script “B”. The interior of the lid and pan has an old gold wash. The gold wash was used to protect silver from corrosive salt and as decoration during this period. The wooden handle screws onto the pan making it detachable.
This rare piece of Georgian silver stands approximately 4.25 inches tall and 8.5 inches from front of pan to tip of handle. The pan measures approximately 4.24 inches tall, 2.75 inches in width and 2.25 in depth.
Made of heavy gauge sterling, it weighs approximately 202 grams without the handle.
Hallmarked as shown in the photos. Pan’s upper edge with lion passant for sterling, lion head for London, Georgian tax stamp, date letter “U” and IR maker’s mark for John Robins. The lid is hallmarked with passant, date letter and maker’s marks.
Condition: The piece is in good condition considering the age and utilitarian use of this piece. There are several dings to the lid and body of the pan. The lid still snaps closed snugly and easily. There are no signs of repairs. The handle still screws on well and holds firmly. There are no pin holes, splits, tears etc. The hinge to the lid is still in perfect order.
This type of Georgian serving piece is rare and would be a unique addition to any collection.
Please feel free to contact me if you should have any questions or require additional photos. I make great effort to accurately describe each item listed. Returns are accepted, if either condition, country of origin or dating is significantly incorrect. Please study the photos which show the hallmarks as described.
Return Policy: Remember, the item is an antique. Hence, it will have an expected amount of wear from normal use. I described the condition honestly and as well as I can in detail. Again, if you have questions or would like more photos, ask before offerding. As such, returning an item because I failed to mention the tiniest bit of wear, or barely discernible flaw is not acceptable. Nor do I accept returns based on buyer's remorse. Nor change of taste, or because a buyer did not realize how “big” or "small" the stated dimension really is.
buyers outside of the U.S. must contact me before offerding for shipping cost and must acknowledge that they are responsible for possible custom / import fees.
