About

An exceptional, fine and impressive, rare antique George I Scottish sterling silver tazza; part of our Georgian silverware collection. This exceptional antique George I Scottish sterling silver tazza has a plain circular form onto a cylindrical pedestal foot. The surface of the tazza is plain and unembellished apart from the silversmiths centre punch mark. The rim of this antique tazza is encompassed with an applied moulded border. The underside of the tazza is embellished with the contemporary engraved initials 'CAM'. This exceptional example of Georgian silverware has a fine colour and patination*. Such period examples in Scottish sterling silver are becoming increasingly scarce to the market. * Patination or Patina is a subtle colouration or tarnish which forms on the surface of some metals, produced by oxidation or other chemical processes. A good patina proffers an aesthetically pleasing look.
