Superb armorial commemorative George II silver toddy ladle C1757 Prince Charles Duke of Grafton

Price £ 575



This superb commemorative armorial George II silver toddy ladle was made C1757 and is unmarked, it measures 15 inches in length and has a coat of arms to the front of the bowl, the bowl is of good gauge and is embossed with fruiting vines and scrolls and it has a medallion to the centre of the crowning of George I, it bears the initials ME to the back of the handle and also a super inscription that runs around the base of the handle which reads TO YE IMMORTAL MEMORY OF THE BEST OF MEN AND THE BEST OF FRIENDS PRINCE CHARLES DUKE OF GRAFTON OBT 6 MAY 1757 AGED 74. It has a twisted baleen handle with a silver tip and is in very good condition (an old minor repair to the seam in the coat of arms but barely discernable), a very rare find with a heartfelt commemoration.
