A very rare & unusual George III Wax Jack made in London in 1777 by Aldridge & Green

£ 4,500

This very fine Wax Jack stands on a very unusual high domed base, pierced with vertical lobes. This example has a circular wax cutter and drip pan, with thread edge, and fan shaped pierced arms. The wax is coiled around the central shaft which terminates in a corded baluster top, with acorn shaped finial. The base displays a sheild shaped cartouche which is engraved with a contemporary Armorial. The Arms are Welsh in origin and are those of the Edwards family charged with a crescent of difference, as used by the Mostyn family. The Wax Jack is in excellent condition and is fully marked on the underside of the base, with the sterling mark on each of the arms and with the maker's mark again on the underside of the drip pan. This is the first time we have seen this specific design and Charles Aldridge and Henry Green were exceptional makers of pierced objects. This would be a very desirable addition to any collection of George III British Silver.
