Antique silver George III salver made by John Hutson of London in 1786.The salver is of rectangular form and stands on four shaped moulded feet. It is beautifully engraved with a border of leaves and grapes and catouches containing flowers. The salver is of a very unusual shape and the condition and decoration are of the highest quality-a very fine piece indeed.
The centre is engraved with the crest of Hobson, a griffin in segreant in beak a key. It is entered in Fairbain's book of crests and is shown on p167 no 13. It is also engraved in a small oval cartouche above the crest ‘J Prendergast to Mrs M Hobson 1794’ a charming feature.
