A wonderful, William IV, solid silver Apple Corer. This is a rare item, made even more collectable as is one single piece that does not dismantle into two separate pieces (which is unusual).
The item is a plain polished silver with no engraving to the body apart from a heraldic bird passant at the top of the handle. It is nicely solid and sturdy to hold in the hand. Hallmarks are visible to the inside of the corer section: assayed in London with a date mark for 1833, along with the Lion Passant indicating sterling silver.
The silver maker's mark is rubbed however, looks like Charles Riley & George Storer.
A rare item, great for a collector. Could be used for cheese!
Condition: In great antique condition (there are some slight marks on the inside of the Corer which are emphasized in the images, when to the naked eye they are not so obvious, they do not detract from this item and are commensurate with the age and particular use of this item and we mention them for complete accuracy).
Hallmarks: London 1833 by Charles Riley & George Storer
