Maker: Charles Eley, William Johnson

A rare pair of George IV silver salad servers in the fiddle and thread pattern.

They are made in 1825-26 with the salad spoon made in 1825 by William Johnson and the salad fork 1826 by Charles Eley.

They both bear the same family crest (everything comes from God-English translation) and are in excellent condition.

Salad servers in original condition like this are quite rare and these are fantastic examples.
