Cast of a silver salver

Plaster cast

Museum number: A20

Curatorial note

This is probably a cast of a 15th century silver salver rather than of an Antique piece as Soane believed.

There is a pencil note in Spiers’ inventory (1907) that this was designed by Michaelangelo [Michelangelo] but this is unlikely. This cast has been water damaged or washed at some point in its history which explains its uneven surface (see SM M1044 for another cast).
