DESCRIPTION

A rare Georgian III silver wine funnel has a separate sieve with attached post rather than the more usual chain more often associated with Bath Plug funnels. They were so named for obvious reasons. Having the plug enabled it to be used as a straight forward funnel or with the “plug” for sieving. Size and style would suggest it was made circa 1760/70,

The bowl has an attractive milled rim and an engine turned ring where the spout section begins. The hall mark is very worn, but from what can be deciphered, the hall mark appears to be an Irish harp stamp indicating Dublin and a makers mark starting with a W followed by a B.  Having studied some 40+ Dublin makers I would find it hard to attribute this mark to any other than possibly William Bond, but the buyer must make up his own mind

Length 10 cms : Width (Top) 6.5 cms : Weight 50 gms.

CONDITION

Other than wear from rubbing, the condition is very good, especially for its age.
