Hallmarked London, 1844

 5" wide x 1 1/2" deep x 3" high

 During the mid-19th century, Robert Garrard II and his brother Samuel greatly expanded their father's firm, R. & S. Garrard, in London. They became the leading producers of presentation silver and were appointed Royal Goldsmiths to the King in 1830, the year of William IV's coronation. Their finely chased works in the Rococo-Revival style received accolades and admiration from the newly appointed monarch. Their repertoire included a large number of sporting cups, vases and centerpieces. They later served as British Crown Jewelers in 1843 and are famous for creating the small diamond crown worn by Queen Victoria after she returned to public life following the death of her husband, Prince Albert.
