fine 18” multi reed charger
i am pleased to offer this exceptional seventeenth century charger by george smith of london. his working dates were 1651 to 1698, leaving this piece approximately 350 years old. it has obviously seen a protected life and was valued greatly by its owners. the makers hallmarks are struck to the front rim, as are owners initials ‘i (j) w’. the rear rim bears smith’s plow touchmarks #ltp353 (m 361) and (m 363) london mark. this charger is in excellent overall condition with a polished front and patinized back.
