Description

This is a wonderful example of a solid sterling silver 3-part wine funnel. It is clearly hallmarked for London 1786 and carries the maker's mark of Samuel Meriton II. It is unusual to find a complete 3-part wine funnel of this age. dating as it does from the reign of George III.

The muslin ring fits tightly into the bowl of the funnel and the spout simply pushes on to the neck. Unusually, the spout isn't broken off at the end. The muslin ring carries a partial hallmark, as does the spout. The bowl has a family emblem engraved - a fist holding what looks to be a bone, but is probably a branch! The tang (the lip attached to the bowl which hooks over the claret jug or decanter) is also free of engravings.
