ROYAL GEORGE III SILVER-GILT STRAINING LADLE

Crested for Son of George III (Prince) Unmarked, c1775

 

Royal George III Silver-Gilt Straining or Sifting Ladle, Crested for Son of George III (Prince); Onslow Pattern 

 

The unusually large ladle of heavy gauge silver, for sifting or straining,
in the Onslow pattern, with a cast overscrolled terminal
and deep round finely foliate-pierced engraved bowl,
the piercing radiating from a sunburst center and enhanced with engraving verso;
the terminal verso bearing a Royal crest beneath the scroll :
A lion statant gardant or, about the neck a label of three points,

resting on an Imperial crown
within the Order of the Garter, 'HONI SOIT QUI MAL Y PENSE',
beneath the Imperial Crown.

 

Royal Crest, son of George III

 
(George III had eight sons. The crests for his sons are quite similar,

sometimes attributed by the details and colors of the three points about the neck,

not discernible in such small engravings.

Due to the differences in life styles,

the Royal crest on this sifting ladle is most likely that of Augustus Frederick, the Duke of Sussex,

who was a great supporter of the arts, elected president of the Society of Arts in 1816.)

 

ONSLOW PATTERN SILVER :

 

Early true 'Onslow' silver, perhaps named after Arthur Onslow (1691-1768),
Speaker of the House of Commons, is somewhat rare and quite beautiful.
The original Onslow pattern was made for a relatively short period of time in the mid-18th century,
but is often copied during the late 19th and 20th centuries.
Its overscrolled grooved handle somewhat resembles
the turned "paperscroll" decoration on early Georgian chairs.

 

Condition : Excellent without damage to the piercing;

a tiny nick to the bowl edge (visible in images) and the bowl very slightly out of round;

the gilt apparently original with a mellow tone and light wear

 

7.75" Long / Bowl Width, 3" / 2.8 oz.

Artist, Guy Head c1798, National Portrait Gallery (London)

 

Prince Augustus Frederick was the ninth child and sixth son of George III and Queen Charlotte.

As he suffered from asthma, he did not join his brothers in receiving military training in Hanover,

and briefly considered becoming a cleric in the Church of England.

He was married twice, but neither was recognized by the crown.

He was made Duke of Sussex, Earl of Inverness, and Baron Arklow,

and a Knight of the Garter on November 27,1801.

Since he died without legitimate issue, the title became extinct.

 

William IV appointed his younger brother Chief Ranger and Keeper of St. James's and Hyde Parks in 1831.

The Duke of Sussex was elected president of the Society of Arts in 1816,

holding that post for the rest of his life.

He also held the honorary posts of Captain-General and Colonel of the Hon. Artillery Company from 1817 onward.

He was president of the Royal Society from 1830 to1838.

 

The Duke of Sussex was the favorite uncle of Queen Victoria, giving her away at her wedding to Prince Albert.

 

The Duke of Sussex died at Kensington Palace in 1843.

His second wife, The Duchess of Inverness, continued to reside at Kensington Palace until her death in 1873.
