An 18th century Irish silver bowl
by Thomas Walker, Dublin, no date letter, second quarter of 18th century
Hemispherical form with a slightly flared rim, raised on a stepped and spread circular foot, engraved with a coat of arms, engraved with scratch weight to base "16.16", height 9cm, diameter 16.5cm, weight 14.59oz.

Footnotes

  • The arms of KENNEDY of co. Dublin impaling FAGAN evidently intended for the marriage of John Kennedy of Johnstown Kennedy who married Eleanor, daughter of Eaton Fagan of Feltrim, and died in 1758.

    John and Eleanor Kennedy were grandparents of John Kennedy (1785 - 1848) who was created a baronet on 18 July 1836. The baronet's augmentation on the male side of this engraved shield is therefore an unwarranted anachronism.
