SILVERSMITH Hugh Mills
DATE or HALLMARK 1749
ASSAY OFFICE London
WEIGHT in GRAMS 650
LENGTH in INCHES inc. handle 7
SILVER STANDARD .925 sterling silver
OVERALL CONDITION Both recently polished and ready for action although both have evidence of old repairs. One has a repair to the handle/bowl joint and functional but not the tidiest rim split repairs, the other has some small rim splits, some repaired. Both have evidence of previous correction to leg joint impressions within the bowl. However, I can easily forgive all of the maintenance work for the way they feel in the hand and the look of those legs, feet and handles.
