Height 10 cms. Spread 22.5 cms. Diameter 9 cms (top), 11 cms (max).
Maker Joseph Sheene.
Literature: *Britannia Standard. In 1696, so extensive had become the melting and clipping of coinage that the silversmiths were forbidden to use the sterling standard for their wares, but had to use a new higher standard, 95.8 per cent. New hallmarks were ordered, “the figure of a woman commonly called Britannia” and the lion’s head erased (torn off at the neck) replacing the lion passant and the leopard’s head crowned. This continued until the old standard of 92.5 per cent was restored in 1720. Britannia standard silver still continues to be produced even today.
This useful warming pan is in very good condition. It is stamped with a full set of English silver hallmarks. The wooden handle has a crack underneath. The handle is very simple shaped and is possibly an old replacement, but equally, some early pan handles had a very crude form. 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.
