John Swift, London, 1747


Fine George II Diminutive Silver Cream Boat, John Swift, London 1747


Of exceptional weight, the oval bowl having a shaped rim
and raised on three leaf-capped knees and heavy scroll feet;
leaf-capped flying C-scroll handle;
engraved with the initial "R" verso at the front leg


"Small oval cream boats were only occasionally produced,
and the majority were of plain design in imitation of the larger sauce boats."

Most are of a far lighter weight, and most are also damaged –
i.e. the feet pushed in or straining at the silver junctions.

This is not the case with this heavy gauge small boat.



Condition : Excellent, without damage or repairs; makers mark rubbed to one side


4-5/8" Long x 2-1/2" Wide x 3-1/2" High (Over handle)
Weight : 4.8 oz.
