George III Silver Skewer

A very good George III silver skewer.

It has a plain ring handle. Most of it is faceted, with a smoothed surface running towards the pointed end. It is engraved with a contemporary crest. The silver hallmarks are very sharply stamped just under the ring.

This is a great skewer -- a good length and weight. Skewers were originally made to hold a joint of meat in a spit, or in an oven while it was being roasted. The ring handle was used to make it easier to remove the meat once the cooking was over -- and to hang during storage. Nowadays, many clients like to use a skewer as a letter opener!

This fine George III silver skewer was made in 1804 by Richard Crossley of London.
