Here are two substantial Table Servers, a meat fork and a table or fish slice, made by the noted Sheffield silversmith, Thomas Sansom.

These elegant Table Servers were made circa 1848 and the ornate Rococo handles are made in fully hallmarked English Sterling Silver.

This is a presentation set and the Table or Fish Slice is engraved with these words: “Presented by the POOR of the Parishes of Brown & Chilton Candover to the Rev.d Richard Dalton on the 23 November 1848 on giving up the Curacy at the end of 10 Years”.

See the period map above for the locations of the two parishes of Brown Candover and Chilton Candover, both a stone’s throw from Jane Austen’s family home at Alton, and the presentation highly evocative of the role of curates in her novels, set in this area of Southern England, a few years earlier.

Both pieces feature beautiful engraving and pierced work.

The Table Servers are overall in very good condition, with some normal wear consistent with their age and usage – see photographs.

A SUBSTANTIAL SET OF TABLE SERVERS WITH STERLING SILVER ROCOCO HANDLES BY THOMAS SANSOM OF SHEFFIELD
AND
A FINE ADDITION TO ANY COLLECTION

SEE THE PICTURES AND DETAILS BELOW

The Meat Fork is ten inches long (10 ins / 25.5 cms) and the Table Server or Slice measures thirteen inches long (13 ins / 33 cms) and they have an overall weight of over eleven ounces (11.2 ozs / 317 grams).
The handles are weighted, but by balance the bullion content of the two is probably well over four ounces of hallmarked sterling silver.

These handsome Table Servers are in lovely condition with no damage or repairs. They have a fine soft patina.

The hallmarks shown above are the maker’s mark “TS” for the noted silversmith, Thomas Sansom, the lion passant guarantee mark for English sterling silver, the crown town mark for Sheffield, and the duty mark the head of Queen Victoria.
