GEORGE III ENGRAVED SUGAR LOAF DECANTER
JACOBITE INTEREST
Great Britain, c1770

 

 

The body with high shoulders in the "sugar-loaf" (or mallet) form,
resembling the "Masonic maul", and engraved with two sprays,
each issuing a single stem having small leaves and three cut and polished flowerheads :
a six-petaled rose, a single bud, and a 4 petal rose;
the shoulders with vertical facet cuts below three rows of elliptical cuts;

the base with vertical flutes; the upright ovoid stopper with oval facets to the rim; lightly polished pontil

 

The six-petaled rose, of course, represents the Stuart Kings.
However, the 4-petaled rose brings to mind 'Prince Henry Benedict Stuart',
who, after the Rebellion of '45, had no further interest in attempting to claim the British throne,
and whom the Pope created Cardinal-Deacon of S. Maria in Portico in 1747.

 

Condition : Excellent; the stopper frosted and with a good fit; minute nick to the neck rim

(can detect with fingernail but not really see); normal wear appropriate to age and usage;

a band of interior scratching at the base of the neck; good footrim wear

 

11.5" High
