Cast of a silver salver

Plaster cast

Museum number: M1044

Curatorial note

Soane believed that this was a cast after the antique but it is in fact a cast of a 15th century salver (see SM A20 for another cast).

There is a pencil note by the first post-war Curator, John Summerson, in the Spiers’ inventory 1906 (facing p.57) ‘Damaged while removing paint July 1947’. This explains the much eroded surface of this plaster.
