AFTER PAUL DE LAMERIE - THE ROYAL SILVERSMITH ROBERT GARRARD. A very rare pair of William IV cast Salt Cellars made in London in 1835 by Robert Garrard.


The Salts cellars are cast and are modelled in a design by Paul De Lamerie, which was popular during the George II period. Each stands on a stepped circular foot which is decorated with a swirling corded band. The circular main body is decorated with acanthus spears and the side also displays a Baron's Coronet, above an engraved mirror cipher. The interior is finely gilded and each base displays a crisp set of hallmarks, as well as GARRARDS, Panton Street, London. The quality of these pieces is outstanding, as is the heavy weight. Robert Garrard displays a crown above his maker's mark, denoting his appointment as the Royal silversmith. It was Queen Victoria who would appoint the firm to the prestigious position of Crown Jeweller.

Height: 2 inches, 5cm.
Diameter at the rim: 3.25 inches, 8.13cm.
Wright: 16oz, the pair.
