Early Cork Silver
A very rare George I plain Provincial sugar bowl made in Cork c 1725 by William Newenham.
Originally the bowl had a separate cover which has been lost over the centuries, hence the scratchweight of 6 oz 9 dwt now compares to the weight of 124 grams. The diameter is 3.75 inches.
This little gem of early Cork silver has the finest colour, texture and patination possible on an item of this age. It is of unbelievable quality for early Cork silver.
