Maker: John Tuite

A very fine early George II silver salver which has a “Chippendale” or “pie crust” pattern border and still bears the beautiful contemporary armorials.

The three feet are of an early scrolled form.

The salver is of exceptionally heavy weight (being about 25% heavier than usual) and is in lovely condition with a fine patina.

John Tuite was a specialist salver maker and this is about as fine an example as one could find.

Dimensions: diameter 31 cm; weight 40 troy oz.

John Tuite

John Tuite was apprenticed to John Matthews of Dublin goldsmiths in 1703 and worked in Dublin from 1710 to 1720, using the same or a similar mark to that entered later in London, before moving to London in 1723.

First mark entered as largeworker, undated, between September 1721 and July 1725. Address: Ireland’s Yard, Blackfriars. Moved to Litchfield Street, near Newport Market, also undated.

Second mark, 27th June 1739. Address: Litchfield Street, St Ann’s Westminster. Heal records him as goldsmith, Irelands Yard, 1721; Green Door, Litchfield Street, near Newport Street, 1721-39 and George Street, York Buildings, Strand 1745.

Tuite specialised in making salvers and had a very distinctive makers mark incorporating a ewer with his initials “JT”. Died in 1740.
