RICHARD COOKE. An extremely rare George III "Slop" Bowl made in London in 1799 by Richard Cooke.

The very rare piece is circular in form and plain in design. The slightly baluster sides rise to an everted rim decorated with reeding. The two side handles also have beaded borders, with oval medallions in the centre. This piece is very well marked and is in excellent condition. These bowls were used to place old tea leaves, from the pot, into awaiting their removal to the kitchen, however examples are scarce. Richard Cooke was an exceptional silversmith who supplied the leading Royal retailers of the day.

Height: 2 inches, 5cm.
Length, handle to handle: 8.5 inches, 21.25cm.
Weight: 9oz.
