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
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.
