An exceptionally large British silver salver or tray of circular form, Maker Edward Barton, London 1831. The cast and applied border of shaped foliate pattern. The central plate with a ring of floral engravings. The tray with 4 legs, also in fine elaborate style.
Size: 44 cm. in diameter and approx. 2 kilograms of sterling silver! (2000 grams or 70-71 ounces).
This is a highly unusual and exceptionally fine salver of massive proportions. Thick robust gauge silver in absolutely original condition with no damage or repair. Clearly struck marks. Very slight wear and a few marks. The definition of the border is crisp as is the engraving. A very important piece by a premier British silversmith of the time.
Provenance: Gift to the Chairman of the Danish National bank, J.A. Børling, in 1955 (faint engraving on the back), before then in a Danish private Collection.
