Three George II silver Butter Shells by James Shruder.


James Shruder, circa 1704-1765.
Three cast silver Butter Shells, struck with a maker’s mark and lion passant only, London circa 1740. The upper side of each is engraved with a contemporary crest of a Bull’s head emiting fire [perhaps for Stewart] and a slightly later crest of circa 1780. Each shell is also struck with a later French import Swan mark.

For a fresh review of James Shruder’s life, see the ‘Research’ tab of this website to which I have added a short essay.
