Georgian silver
wig-powderer
1805/1860 this silver wig-powderer (or pepperette?) of oval form with molded base was made in 1805 by John Emes. At some point, the lid was lost. The lid was replaced by Charles and George Fox (well known as fabricators of spare parts) in 1860. The wig-powderer has gilt interior and a crest representing a lion's head pierced through by an arrow.
The lid's replacement has the shape of an half globe. It's likely that the original lid had a more elaborate shape, as I've the photos of a wig-powderer made by John Emes in 1797, with a quite similar base and a dome lid (see two photos on bottom right).
The wig-powderer is fully marked under the base and on the interior of the lid.
It measures 3 in. (cm. 8) and was bought by a U.K. dealer through the Internet.

This item is not for sale, but most of my pieces were bought through the Internet. On this page there are some advertisings of websites of silver and antique dealers
