6537 A Silver Wine Funnel with Embossed Decoration
This charming wine funnel is smaller than some but is made from good gauge silver. It is embossed with a broad band of flowers and foliage within cusped borders and on a matted ground. It is in good in good condition with a full curve to the spout. it has reeded edges to the rim and strainer and has a waisted tang.
It has not been possible to determine th maker, whose mark has been overstamped by another - rendering both illegible! However, the hallmarks are clear to read. There is a monogram within a cartouche which is consistent with what one expect in 1808 which suggests the embossed decoration is original as the cartouche is pat of the decoration.
