A very rare George I Britannia Standard Hare Hunt Porringer made in London in 1719 by Richard Green.


The Porringer is of a good large size and is decorated, on the lower half of the main body, with alternate lobes and flutes. The upper section displays a protruding lobed band and various bands of punched foliate motifs. The front of the main body is most unusual engraved with a Hare Hunt, with the inscription, J*S HILAM, between the dog and the hare. The reverse is engraved with a set of initials on an oval disc, surrounded by a cartouche of scrolls, scale work and acanthus foliage. The Porringer has two cast beaded S scroll handles. This piece is fully marked on the side of the main body and shows Greens interesting mark of a G containing a small letter r. This is the first time we have seen such a piece engraved with a hunting scene, which has been executed to the highest standard, considering the early date.
