An impressive antique silver charger or salver of the finest quality. This magnificent piece is hand chased in sharp details across the surface in a combination of scrolls, swirling foliage, butterflies and floral work as well as sections of lattice set against a stippled ground. The wavy border has a finely detailed scroll and leaf mount and the salver rests on four cast openwork supports in the form of swirling scrolls.

The centre of the salver features an elaborate cartouche incorporating a family crest of a demi-lion rampant and the motto "semper eadem", meaning "always the same", can be traced to arms of the Dockrell and Harvey families.

England's Queen Elizabeth I's motto was "semper eadem" and "always the same" for her was an expression of stability, integrity and tranquil equanimity following the turbulence of her father's - King Henry VIII - reign.

This excellent hand-engraved silver salver is not available for purchase online. If you are interested to buy it, please get in touch.
