A very fine George I Octagonal Sugar Caster made in London in 1726 by Thomas Bamford I.

£ 4,650

The Caster is of plain octagonal form and stands on a cast stepped foot which is decorated with reeding. The wide section of the main body is decorated with a double reeded band and the upper selnder section rises to an everted, reeded, rim. The pull-off cover is pierced and engraved with attractive geometric scroll panels and terminates in a stylised octagonal urn finial. The caster is fully marked in the foot and with the maker's mark and sterling mark on the cover. The caster is of a very good weight, gauge and colour and has never been engraved with a heraldic device.

Thomas Bamford was a specialist caster maker with workshops in Gutter Lane. He was apprentice to the caster maker, Charles Adam and his apprentice, Samuel Wood, also specialised in the production of sugar casters.
