George III Two Handled Silver Tray, London, 1816 by Joseph Angell

About

A very fine large Regency period oval silver tray with a pierced and beaded border. The piercing overlaid with floral swagging and stylized flower heads and Roman style heads. The ribbed handles with Roman intaglios. The central plate engraved with a large armorial of a Roman male and female either side of a shield. At the bottom is the motto: Bear and forbear. Marked to the reverse for London, 1816. The maker’s mark is partially obscured, but very probably for Joseph Angell. At this time in London, a maker's mark with an 'A' as the surname and in a rectangular punch (see pictures), can only indicate one of two makers - Joseph Ash (IA) or Joseph Angell (JA). Angell seems the likely maker, he is renowned as a prolific silversmith producing large pieces to a very high standard. Ash is rather an obscure maker who seems to have focused on smaller work. The coat of arms belong to Hercules Langford Rowley of Summerhill, Co. Meath Ireland 1795-1839. The firm of Joseph Angell and Son was one of the largest and most important silversmithing and jewellery, manufacturers and retailers in London in the mid-19th century. Its origins can be traced back to the late 18th century when Joseph Angell was apprenticed to Henry Nutting, goldsmith of Noble street, on October 5, 1796. Joseph Angell entered his first mark as a plateworker at the London Assay Office on October 7, 1811. At first the firm established by Joseph Angell began as manufacturing silversmiths to the trade, supplying Rundell Bridge and Rundell and Hunt and Roskell amongst many others. A wonderful and extremely attractive piece of Georgian silver in excellent condition with no damage or repairs. The family crest is exceptionally attractive. There is one minor casting flaw to the underside of one piece of the pierced border. This is original and is not visible from the top. The hallmarks are clear but the first letter of the maker’s name is obscured. Measures: Length 29 inches over handles or 73.5 cm Width 18 inches or 46 cm Weight 3695 g, 119 ozT or 130.3 oz.
