Maker: Richard Rugg

A rare early George III pierced border salver of circular form made by the specialist salver maker, Richard Rugg.

The outer rim of the salver has a fine gadroon pattern border.

The border is finely hand pierced and is very much in the chinoiserie taste that was popular amongst the wealthy in the late George II, early George III period.

The salver stands on three conforming pierced feet.

It is of good weight and condition with a fine unembellished surface.

Dimensions: diameter 20 cm; weight 13 troy oz.

Richard Rugg

Christenings were held at St Andrews, Holborn in 1748 for Honor; in 1749 for Richard; in 1750 for John and in 1752 for Mary – all children of Richard and Mary Rugg of Caroline Court and Saffron Hill.

Indentures were signed in 1754 by Thomas Wicker, in 1758 by John Crouch (Grimwade p. 480), in 1759 by William Watson, in 1761 by John Hutson (Grimwade p. 556), in 1763 by his son Richard and in 1764 by John Glover to be his apprentices.

The burial of a Richard Rugg of St John’s Square recorded at St James, Clerkenwell in 1775 presumably related to the son born in 1749, as Grimwade suggests Richard Rugg senior died 1795 – 1801.
