George II creamer with panels of overlapping waves; jester's head at top of handle; central scroll on rim. Later regilt

Creamer, c. 1735-1745

The superb quality of this creamer's marine decoration suggests it was made by either Paul de Lamerie or Nicholas Sprimont (later founder of the Chelsea porcelain factory). Both silversmiths were masters of casting ornaments, such as the intertwining dolphin feet and mask at the top of the handle; both are known to have made and marked similar examples.
