Lovely, antique, silver plate, silent butler/ crumb catcher/ ashtray, with armorial crest. The armorial crest features a rampant lion. The handle is brown, stained wood. The thumb lever is of a lions leg.
Measurements: approx 13 1/2" long including handle. The main part measures 7 1/8" wide x 7 1/8" long x 2 1/2" tall not including thumb lever. Thumb lever measures 1" tall
Marks: Silver On Copper.
This silent butler has expected signs of age and use such as light surface scratches, some copper showing through in various places (which I believe adds to its charm), flea bites and some scuffs on the bottom. Still very shiny and beautiful. No obvious damage.
