HESTER BATEMAN. A very fine George III Decanter Stand made in London in 1774 by Hester Bateman

£1,650

This rare piece stands on four claw and ball feet and has a raised shaped rim decorated with applied beading interspersed with foliate motifs.  The centre is engraved with a contemporary shield shaped Amorial, with Crest above.  Due to its size, this piece was most likely a decanter or bottle stand, but could also be used for a sauceboat.  This piece is of a very good gauge and weight and displays a crisp set of marks.  The Armorial and Crest is that as used by the Brooke family (the Crest is a Brock or Badger).  They impale those of the Tucker family of Kent.  Hester Bateman made very few stands, salvers and trays and examples are seldom seen.


Diameter: 6 inches, 15cm.

Weight: 8 oz.
