A fine piece of early Irish silver. A plain styled snuffer tray of simple oval shape with a shaped side handle and round feet. To the centre there is an engraved crest. This is a very charming item, it handles well and the colour is excellent. Very good weight 214 grams, 6.8 troy ounces. Length 18 cms. Width 7.75 cms, 13.5 including handle. Makers mark only for John Hamilton. Dublin circa 1725.


This lovely silver tray is in good condition. Heavy gauge silver and excellent patina. Makers mark only which is not unusual for Irish silver of this early date. There are a few signs of wear and tear. The hand engraved crest is a little worn. There are also traces of a crest or initials on the carrying handle but this has been worn away, also the top of the handle is slightly flattened from used over the years. There is some scuffing on the underside and a scratch weight 7=2. Underneath there is a small repair where the handle meets the tray (a strengthening plate). Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
