GEORGE III SILVER PIERCED SERVER, Charles Aldridge & Henry Green, London, 1773

Of the very desirable triangular pierced and bright cut form, the blade pierced with foliate scrolls and circles with finely gadrooned edge, floriform attachment to a double C-scroll shaft; original turned wood handle with finely engraved collar at ferrule.

The second half of the 18th century saw the introduction of a trowel-form pierced server, used at the time for both fish and pudding. The workmanship on the early examples is rather extraordinary - with intricate foliate-cut designs to the triangular blade, further embellished with bright cutting. They are now used for serving a great variety of foods - most particularly pastries. These triangular forms are the most sought after of the fish serving pieces.

5.5 oz 12.5" Long
