UNUSUAL GEORGIAN SILVER VINAIGRETTE BY JOHN SIDAWAY, ...

Item Ref
MAI46

This plain silver vinaigrette is unusual by the fact it was made in London by a lesser known silversmith (vinaigrettes were usually made by Birmingham silversmiths or "toymakers" *)

The plain oval body with a hinged cover opening to reveal a rich gilt interior. The pull-off gilt grille is simply drilled. The interior still retains its original sponge and the inner base is fully hallmarked. It is a very functional vinaigrette and is not as finely executed as the vinaigrettes made by Birmingham toymakers. This particularity makes it quite an interesting piece.

* from the late 18th to early 19th Century, Birmingham was the centre for the making of “toys”: small decorative objects from silver. They were produced in small family businesses and factories throughout Birmingham. They made a range of items including patch boxes, nutmeg graters, buckles, caddy spoons, vinaigrettes, snuff boxes and babies rattles. *

DELIGHTFUL GEORGIAN REVIVAL BRITANNIA SILVER CREAM JUG ...

Item Ref
MAI70

This exquisite Edwardian Britannia standard silver* cream jug was made by Maurice Freeman. The baluster body with shaped rim. Raised on a hollow pedestal base.

Leaf-capped scroll handle.

* The Britannia standard mark: In 1697 a new high standard rate of silver was introduced known as the Britannia Standard. Britannia silver was an increase from the sterling standard rate of 92.5% to 95.84%. The reason for its introduction was actually a consequence of the English Civil War (1642 - 1651) during which massive amounts of silver had been melted down and converted into money to pay the troops.

After the civil war ended, the demand for domestic silver rose astronomically and hence coins were being melted down to fulfil the demand. To stop the destruction of the coinage, the practice was deemed illegal in 1697 and the creation of the higher Britannia 95.84% rate was introduced to prevent silversmiths from using the sterling standard coins.

In 1720 Sterling silver along with its original form of marking was reinstated. From 1720 up to the present day both Sterling and Britannia standards have been in operation side by side together. Although this is the case, the Britannia standard was rarely used until its revival in the late 19th century.

This cream jug is an example of the Britannia standard revival, which was happening in the late 19th / early 20th Century.

F.M for Maurice Freeman.
Britannia silver mark.
