A very fine George III Serving Slice made in London in 1777 by Robert Hennell

The Slice has a long oval flat blade which has a circumferential frieze of bright cutting and double wriggle work lines around a pierced, engraved, area of laurel leaves, swags and a central star burst. The un-pierced area is engraved, on both sides, with a Neo-Classical covered urn, above an oval boss engraved with a contemporary Crest. The waisted shank connects to a double beaded handle. A near identical example is shown in " Antique Silver Servers for the Dining Table", by Benton Seymour Rabinovitch, page 123, figure 7.

Length: 11.9 inches, 29.75cm.
Width, at the widest point of the blade: 2.6 inches, 6.5 inches.
Weight: 6.9oz.
