Exquisite Georgian period sterling silver vinaigrette by Thomas Shaw of Birmingham, England. Beautifully ornate on both sides and even all around the four sides, top and bottom. Center cartouche on the top is unmonogrammed. The interior has a gold wash. Marked for English sterling, Birmingham, and with Thomas Shaw's maker mark, which he registered in 1822 in Birmingham. The date letter indicates this vinaigrette was made by him in 1835. It measures 14/16" in length (almost one inch) and 1/2" wide, and is 1/4" tall. Hallmarked on the interior lid with the duty mark of King William IV, the reigning monarch, the maker's mark TS (Thomas Shaw) and the lion passant denoting the sterling silver standard. The grill flips up, and underneath is the anchor mark denoting the city of Birmingham, the maker's mark TS, and the date letter for 1835. The piece is in impeccable condition, with a good working hinge, it opens easily, the grill flips up easily, and the piece closes securely. From a private collection, fresh to market. 1835. Fabulous.
