DESCRIPTION

A rare William IV silver wine funnel has a separate sieve with attached post rather than the more usual chain associated with Bath Plug funnels. It dates back to an early type of wine funnel dating from the middle of the 18th century. 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.

The funnel has 3 ribs where the spout narrows to enable air to escape when using it. It has a clear full set of marks; maker’s mark, lion rampant, leopards head (London Assay Office), date letter “q” (1831-32) and the King’s Head (Duty Mark).

The maker’s mark. EE above JW with a B in the middle is the mark of Edward Barnard and his sons, Edward Jnr, John and William. Edward Barnard was an eminent silversmith more often worked with Rebecca Emes in the early 19th century 1808 – 1829, when he entered his 5th mark with his sons.

Length – 12 cms : Width (Top) – 7cms : Weight – 65 gms.
