BID ON THE-SALEROOM
A George III silver entree dish, of shaped oblong form with applied foliate, shell and gadroon rim, engraved to underside of rim with twin-opposed crests depicting three arrows spearing a fish. Hallmarked Thomas Robins, London 1817. Maximum length measures 13 inches (33 cm), weight 39.49 ozt (1228.2 grams).
The dish displays general surface scratches, marks, wear and tarnishing commensurate with the age and use. Several dints and bumps, especially some visible to the base corners. Numerous deeper scratches, nicks and marks. Heavier tarnishing to the underside, would benefit from a polish. The hallmarks appear rubbed in places but still legible. Also with impressed number 1 and crudely incised initials 'V K M'.
