Antique George III English Silver Waste Bowl

$750.00
  • Sheffield, 1820 by Thomas and John Settle
  • Dimensions: 2 1/2 inches high, 3 1/2 inches in diameter

A very attractive Antique George III, English Silver Waste Bowl. By the middle of the 18th Century, small circular or octagonal bowls were added to the serving of tea. Slop Bowls, as they were called, were used for pouring out the remaining tea which had become cold. Then, a new cup of tea could be poured. In the 19th Century, the waste bowl became more elaborate exemplified by this piece. Even to this day, waste bowls do not have any handles or lids. This lovely Georgian Antique English Silver Waste Bowl is chased with a floral and scroll design which resonates throughout the piece. It is set on 4 wing paw feet.
