SILVER & PLATE

TOOVEY'S conduct monthly sales of silver and plated items, featuring a broad selection of domestic and collectors’ pieces of all ages by a wide range of makers.

Pictured right:  a Victorian silver claret jug, modelled in the form of a Greek askos, the rim applied with two recumbent goats flanking a leaf-capped scroll handle above an applied cherub, the body with a matt finish, the handle inscribed ‘Willm. Henry Wills from Charles Dickens’, London 1859 by John Samuel Hunt, the foot inscribed ‘Hunt & Roskell Late Storr & Mortimer 218’, height approximately 21.5cm.  Note: this jug is the subject of a letter to Wills from Dickens, dated 1862: ‘A little packet will come to you to-day... The packet will contain a claret jug... It is not made of a perishable material, and is so far expressive of our friendship.  I have had your name and mine set upon it, in token of our many years of mutual reliance and trustfulness.  It will never be so full of wine, as it is to-day of affectionate regard...’ Ref. Lehmann, R.C. (editor). Charles Dickens as Editor, being letters written by him to William Henry Wills, his sub-editor. (London: 1912. p.307).  Sold for £8000, to a descendant of Charles Dickens.
