The Caster is of a very rare form and stands on a stepped spreading circular foot decorated with bold gadrooning. The baluster shaped main body is plain in design and is also decorated with a gadrooned band. The pull off cover terminates in a writhen finial and is engraved with swirling linear bands and foliate sprays, as well as displaying a third gadrooned band. The front of the caster is also engraved with an unusual contemporary Crest of an arm in armour holding arrows. The caster is in excellent condition and is well marked in the foot and with the crowned harp and Hibernia on the sleeve of the cover. Any casters from Ireland are extremely rare, however this is the first time we have seen a Blind Mustard Caster from this centre of silver production.
