|Made By||TC (Fish Above)|
A Charles II silver two-handled porringer of circular bellied form. The porringer has scroll handles and is embossed with a running unicorn and lion within foliate scroll decoration. The base has the scratch initials of “L” over “WI”, as well as on the side.
The lion and unicorn on this lovely porringer are symbolic of the restoration of the monarchy – the tulip decoration is popular at this period, as of course, Charles II was exiled in the Netherlands.
The porringer is in excellent condition and a fine patina.
The porringer has the maker’s mark of TC with a fish above. For maker’s mark see Jacksons, Ian Pickford Edition, The Antique Collectors Club 1989, page 133.
