This outstanding silver sugar urn by famed silversmith Robert Hennell exemplifies the best of Georgian silver. This piece exhibits a stunning neoclassical design, punctuated by elegantly curved serpent handles and both pierced and engraved decoration across its form, including a central armorial crest. The Hennell family was one of the most distinguished of all the silversmith dynasties. Established by David Hennell, who first registered his mark in 1736, the family included David’s son Robert, who registered his own maker's mark in 1772 and 1773 and became a pioneer in producing the neoclassical style in silver. This urn beautifully showcases his indisputable talent as a master silversmith.
