Charles Le Roux American

Not on view

This square salver with an upcurved rim and bracket feet is one of only two such American salvers known. It and a similarly rare coffeepot (1997.498.1) are engraved with the arms of Assheton quartering Shepley, for Ralph Assheton (1695–1745/6) of Philadelphia. Both are the work of Charles Le Roux, a leading New York silversmith of the second quarter of the eighteenth century, whose clientele included a number of prominent Philadelphians. The coffeepot and salver remained together, in family hands, until 1989.

Salver, Charles Le Roux (baptized 1689–1745), Silver, American
