It is hallmarked for Dublin. Similar examples are listed to be attributed also to Matthew West, who was a Dublin silver smith at a similar but later time, however his marks don't have the pointed shield shape to them, which this one does. Not all Dublin silver from the mid 18th century had the date letter added so its hard to tell a precise date. The authority on Irish silver Douglas Bennett in his book "Collecting Irish Silver" dates this makers mark variation from 1758 to 1761. So we are taking this to be C1760.It is either late George II or early George III, Irish silver sauce boat in a lovely shape quite a rare thing. Approximate weight of sauce boat is 163 grams or 5.26 troy ounces. Are 169mm (6.6") length and 103 mm (4") height and.
