Daniel Christian Fueter American

Not on view

Salvers, or trays raised on a base or upon multiple feet, were a popular form in eighteenth-century silver. This large and vigorously shaped example, by the New York maker Daniel Christian Fueter, is particularly notable for the engraved arms in an elaborate Rococo shield. They belong to the Provost family, a prominent New York family of French Huguenot extraction.
