George IV/Victorian King's pattern fish slice London 1822 1837 Hayne Cater unusual construction Woolaston

A George IV/Victorian King's pattern fish slice made in London in 1822 and with a blade added in 1837 by Hayne and Cater (part marked as an addition to an existing piece). The handle is crested for Wollaston and the blade is engraved with the arms of Wollaston impaling another.
Price: £325.00

This fish slice is an unusual example of adherence to the law that pieces added to an existing one needed to be hallmarked. There is a joint in the handle that can just be seen on the back but it has been extremely skilfully engineered. It is only possible to assume that a member of the Wollaston family prized this fish slice highly enough that when the blade became damaged, or it was desired to celebrate the marriage in the arms, the handle was retained rather than just ordering a new one.

Provenance: Collection of A. B. L. Dove FSA
