Antique George III English Sterling Silver Fish Slice/Pudding Trowel

  • London, 1772 by Charles Aldridge and Henry Green
  • Dimensions: 11 7/8 inches length

An exceptional Antique George III English Silver Slice/Pudding Trowel. Beginning in the 1740s, these serving trowels first appeared and were not produced in quantity until the 1760s. At first, they were used to serve pudding/custard and eventually they became recognized for serving what we are now familiar with – fish. Whether used for serving fish or pudding, these utensils were often pierced with exquisite workmanship.

This impressive Antique George III English Silver Fish Slice/Pudding Trowel has a spade shaped blade. It is embellished with wonderful piercing and has elaborate scrolling branch and floral ornamentation. There is also a geometric design which resonates on the blade. The stem of the handle is ornamented with exquisite workmanship as well.

It is becoming increasingly difficult to locate a Antique George III Silver Fish Slice/Pudding Trowel in exquisite condition like this one is. Thus, we are thrilled to have acquired this exquisite piece and hope you feel the same way.
