DUBLIN. An extremely rare George III Pudding Trowel made in Dublin circa 1770 by William Bond.


The oval shaped blade is slightly dished and completely engraved with a feather edge rim. It is beautifully pierced and engraved with foliate scrolls and flower heads, around a vacant cartouche. The cast tri-furcated moulding is joined to a feather edge handle of Old English shape, but which is rounded downwards along the long axis. The top of the handle is chased with a shell, an asymmetric scrolled empty cartouche and pendant leaf tendril. The Slice is in quite excellent condition and is marked on the edge of the blade. Irish trowels are extremely rare and this is only the second we have offered over all of the years. A similar example is illustrated on page 69 of Antique Silver Servers for the Dining Table, by Benton Seymour Rabinovitch.

Length: 12 inches, 30cm.

Width, across the blade: 3.9 inches, 9.75cm
