Description

The Capells were a prominent English family during the Restoration and after. This piece, in nearly perfect condition, exhibits an unusually high level of finish in the chasing--such density and precision are rarely seen. Coupled with the gilding, the fine gauge, and the overall small size, it gives the whole thing a jewel-like feel rare in seventeenth century silver.<br /><br />

Provenance:<br />
Henry, Baron Capell of Tewkesbury (1637-1696), to his widow,
Dorothy Capell (1642-1721) and thence by descent, until sold and acquired by<br />
J. Pierpont Morgan, by 1908, until sold by his heirs<br />
S.J. Shrubsole, 2000<br /><br />

Literature:<br />
E. Alfred Jones, Illustrated Catalogue of the Collection of Old Plate of J. Pierpont Morgan, Esquire, 1908, p. 28, pl. XXIV
