Literature. The traditional form of salver with plain flat surfaces and small feet at the edge, rarely found before the reign of George I, was made in various forms such as round, rectangular, oval and octagonal and are an ideal starting off point for collectors of early silver. The term “waiter” is not commonly used but relates to small examples less than 6 or 7 inches; these have become very popular now to stand a bottle or wine glass.


This lovely antique salver is in very good condition. The silver marks are clear and easy to read. Good colour. The engraving is still sharp. Shows moderate signs of wear commensurate with age.
