A magnificent George I Sugar Caster, of large size, made in London in 1725 by Thomas Bamford.

This is most probably the largest sugar caster we have offered over all of the years. This piece has a very attractive pear shaped body and stands on a reeded spreading foot. The domed, removable, cover is pierced with unusual vertical panels, including crescent and diamond motifs. The cover terminates in a cast bell finial. The front of the main body is engraved with a contemporary Armorial, surrounded by a scroll and trellis work cartouche. The Arms are those of the Drummond family. The caster is fully marked in the foot and with the maker's mark and sterling mark on the sleeve of the cover.

This is a very early example of this style and is of exceptional quality and weight. As previously intimated, it is the largest we have offered over the years. Thomas Bamford, was a specialist caster maker, whose mark is only to be found on these items.

Height: 8 inches, 20cm.
Diameter at the widest point: 3.1 inches.
Weight: 15oz.
