Presented is a handsome English Georgian sterling silver creamer. This piece dates to 1806 and was made by John Emes. The creamer is beautifully engraved around the widest part with a band of Greek key design. The interior of the creamer has a rich gold wash.

There are a couple of dings here and there, which are hard to notice from the outside.There are no splits, no breaks, no serious dents, no monograms, no monogram removals, and no repairs. This piece is hallmarked on the back, to the right of the handle, with the lion passant for sterling silver, the leopard's head crowned for the city of London, the date letter L for 1806, King George III's head duty mark, and the maker's mark for John Emes. The creamer stands about 3 1/8 inches tall. This piece weighs 214 grams or 7.5 regular ounces.
