English Hand Pierced Pie Server by Thomas Nash I, of London, 1769. Both the handle and the slice are pierced on this pie server. The piercing on the blade or slice is a network of floral and scrolls enhanced with hand engraving that defines leaves and blossoms among the scroll work. The edges of the slice and the handle are engraved with feather edge decoration. On the back and at the base of the slice is a hand-engraved heraldic crest depicting a half-body rampant lion above a five twist wreath, over an “HB” monogram.
The English hallmarks on a bottom corner of the back of the slice are: The crowned leopard's head, for the city of London; the lion passant, to designate that the server assayed sterling silver; the date letter of a gothic "O" for 1769; and the maker's mark of a capital "TN" for Thomas Nash I. There are no other markings or engravings on this pie server.
This piece measures approximately 11 inches long.
