William Burwash:

Superb Georgian Toast Rack by the rarely observed and short lived London Silversmith. No record of apprenticeship is recorded. His father was listed from 1782 - 1804 as a watchmaker.

William was first listed with Richard Sibley in 1805. In 1812 alone, likely worked only for a few years.

Known for creative design and superb finish detail. Examples of his work are sometimes found in major private and institutional collections, most of these with the Sibley partnership. The Clark Art Institute Collection at Williamstown, Massachusetts, USA displays a very fine Burwash & Sibley Basket.

Wonderful piece offered at a fair asking price in very fine untouched condition.
