A GEORGE II OVAL SILVER CAKE BASKET
MARK OF EDWARD ALDRIDGE, LONDON, 1749
The four foliate scroll feet terminating in flower-flanked rococo cartouches, with fruiting vine, scroll and rococo cartouche border above pierced sides, the swing handle with animal masks and an applied vacant cartouche, engraved with a coat-of-arms to centre, the base faintly later engraved with a scratch-weight 57=12
14¼ in. wide (36 cm.)

The arms are probably the assumed arms of Cox. A very similar coat-of-arms, but with the chief, or upper part of the arms, charged with a rose between two ostrich feathers were granted in 1761 to Cox of London. They are perhaps as a variation of the unofficial arms used by the family before the official grant.
Provenance
A Lady; Christie's, London, 14 July 1993, lot 66.
