|George I waiter by Augustine Courtauld, London, 1726. Size: 6.5 inches x 6.5 inches x 1 inch. Weight: 11 troy ounces. Britannia standard silver (95.84% pure). Excellent condition, with no dents, repairs or erasures. An attractive small size plain waiter with a shaped quatrefoil border and supported on four hoof feet by one of London's most influential of Huguenot silversmiths, Augustine Courtauld, and created while he was working in St. Martins Lane (1708-1729). Augustine designed silver in the Queen Anne tradition, following in the steps of his master, Simon Pantin. His silver was consistently of the highest quality and he produced it for many notable families and institutions, including the Russian royal family and a State Salt created for the City of London in 1730.
