A magnificent pair of antique sterling silver chargers (or sideboard dishes) with gilt finish. Decorated in the 17th century style with deep relief embossed fruit and foliage. The centre is engraved with a large coat of arms of Scott impaling Surtees for John Scott, 1st Earl of Eldon (1751-1838) and his wife Bessie. Scott was made an Earl in 1821. Weight each 3395 grams approx, 109.1 troy ounces. Diameter 64 cms. London 1816. Maker William Pitts, known for making large and impressive chargers.
These handsome dishes are in very good condition with no damage or restoration. Crisp condition throughout and no wear to the engravings. Each is stamped on the edge with a full and clear set of English silver hallmarks; one charger is stamped on the front, the other is marked on the reverse side. The main gilding has no wear, the centre gilding is fainter, possibly due to the armorials being added later, probably in Victorian times.

Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
The large coat of arms is of Scott impaling Surtees for John Scott, 1st Earl of Eldon (1751-1838) and his wife Bessie. Scott was made an Earl in 1821.
