A VICTORIAN SILVER NOVELTY FIGURAL CIGAR LIGHTER, ROBERT HENNELL & SONS, LONDON, 1880
modelled as a seated terrier with large collar below his detachable head, clutching a pipe in his mouth, flanked by a Georgian style mug and a battered top hat, all on a naturalistic mound, P.O.D.R. lozenge for 7 December 1877, also a barbed 'H' mark probably for the retailer Hancocks & Co.
green and black granite base 17.2cm

The manufacturing silversmiths Robert Hennell & Sons produced a wide range of naturalistic and figural novelty wares, many retailed by Hancocks & Co. From the 1860s the quality of the modelling becomes noteworthy, under the auspices of James Barclay Hennell, who may well have modelled items himself. Dogs with pipes in their mouths are a familiar theme in Victorian art; examples can be found in Staffordshire pottery. The inspiration for such figures probably stems from paintings by Sir Henry Edwin Landseer such as 'A Quiet Pipe', used in Pear's Soap advertising and 'Low Life', where a similar Bull Terrier in large collar is depicted sitting beside a pewter mug. The present rare lot is an usual example where the pipe has a function, in this case issuing the flame of the lighter.

(4)

Matthew Boulton and John Fothergill's partnership at the Soho Manufactory lasted from 1762-1782. Much of the silver was to special commission. In the 1770s James Wyatt supplied a number of designs, although much of the partnership's Neo-classical output is probably more directly attributable to the firm's chief designer at this time, Francis Eginton (1737-1805). Eginton later became better known for his glass painting, an art he revived after leaving the manufactory in 1784. For a related design of Boulton & Fothergill salts with solid sides, see Stair Galleries, New York, 13 September 2009, lot 658

A GEORGE III SILVER TEA TUB (CADDY), THOMAS HEMING, LONDON, 1766
square, imitating a wooden Chinese tea chest, engraved to the sides in the workshop of Robert Clee with simulated planks and twice repeated Chinese pictograms for 'Yi' (righteous, patriotic and justice) and 'Chang' (prosperous, glorious and good) within borders of scroll foliage on a linear ground, the flush-hinged lid with cast flower sprig finial and similarly bordered
9.4cm wide, 410gr (13oz)

For an another caddy with the same engraving (including the border details), but with a differing finial, marked Aaron Lestourgeon, 1768, see the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, No.WA1955.46 and another similar sold Sotheby's, New York, 16 April 2005, lot 274, marked Parker & Wakelin four times, circa 1770.

Examples of this model of caddy or canister (called a 'tea tub' at the time) appear between about 1765 and 1773, many with Lestourgeon's maker's mark. Helen Clifford, in her book Silver in London: The Parker and Wakelin Partnership 1760-1776, (Yale University Press, 2004) reconstructs the fascinating system of outworkers who produced these caddies for Parker & Wakelin. The bodies were formed from sheet by Ansill and Gilbert or by Aldridge and Woodnorth for £1 8s. each, the former also supplying three sizes of sprig finial. Aaron and William Lestourgeon then fitted the locks and lined the interiors in lead for 5s. each. The borders and characters were subsequently engraved in Robert Clee's workshop, opposite Parker & Wakelin's shop in Panton Street, before delivery to the retailer. It would seem the process, from start to finish, took under three weeks. Apparently they were retailed by Parker & Wakelin for about £9. The same procedure would have been followed for the supply of these caddies to another leading goldsmiths of the day, Thomas Heming, who had been appointed Principal Goldsmith to the King in 1760.

'The career of one specialist silver engraver, Robert Clee (c.1710-1773), has been studied in depth by Robert Barker. In addition to silver, Clee engraved a number of signed trade cards, including those of the chemist Richard Sidall and the goldsmith Thomas Heming. Barker has demonstrated that Clee's establishment, which included both apprentices and outworkers, provided extensive engraving services for the prominent London retailers Parker and Wakelin as well as for Thomas Heming. Although it is impossible to distinguish among the various engravers he employed, it seems likely that much of the best silver engraving carried out during this period passed through Clee's workshop.' (Beth Carver Wees, English, Irish & Scottish Silver and the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute, New York, 1997, pp. 338-340)

Interestingly Robert Clee's will (National Archives, PROB 11/987) stipulates: 'I give and bequeath to Mr Parker Mr Wakelin and Thomas Heming Esquire a Diamond Ring Each of the value of Ten pounds to be made by themselves'.

cast shell pattern, with corded borders, each shaped square base engraved with a woman's coat of arms within Rococo foliage, complete with their detachable nozzles
26cm high, 1296gr (41oz 13dwt)

The arms are those of Blagden (female) of Keevil, Wiltshire, probably for Eleanor Blagden (d.1785). The clothier, Roger Blagden, built Blagden House in Keevil in the late 16th century. The property remained in the family for several generations, the house remodelled by Edward Blagdon (d.1730) in 1710. His son, also Edward, died without issue in 1748, the estate passing to his sisters, both unmarried, Anne who died in 1773 and the above Eleanor. The estate then went via cousins to the Chamberlaine family. Eleanor may not have lived at the house in Keevil, as her will describes her as a spinster of Devizes, mentioning a number of other properties, including one in Petty France, Westminster.
