Large Britannia Silver Queen Anne Sugar Caster, London 1706/7



A very fine and large Britannia silver Queen Anne caster. Of round tapered baluster form, with an applied band running around the belly. The base is engraved with a crest of a stag’s head surmounted with a powder horn. The bayonet mounted, pierced lid has a raised band applied around the middle, topped with an acorn finial. All standing on a stepped circular foot. Hallmarked to the base for London 1706/7 by Thomas Farren. The lid has a partial Britannia Mark. This is a rare example of a very fine quality Britannia silver caster with no signs of damage or repair. The caster is made from a thick gauge of silver and is of excellent color and patina found on early eighteenth century silver. This caster was made in the first few months of Thomas Farren’s professional career, and is an exceptional early example of this fine silversmith’s work. Thomas Farren was apprenticed in 1795 to John Denny. Free 3rd October 1707. First mark entered as a large-worker, 16th October 1707. He was appointed Subordinate Goldsmith to the King in 1723 and served until his death in 1742. His work is of fine quality and shows Huguenot influence. His best known apprentice was Thomas Whipham. Measures: Height 20cm or 8” Width at widest point: 8.5cm or 3.5” Weight: 333g or 10.7 ozT or 11.7oz.
