The Ladle from the Grand Punch Bowl, 1841-1842

Edward, John & William Barnard served as the silversmiths for this handsome ladle of ivory and silver gilt. The piece was made between 1841 and 1842 for The Grand Punch Bowl that has presided over many a soiree at the Royal Residences. The bowl, originally a wine cooler, was changed into its present form for the christening of Prince Albert Edward (later King Edward VII) at Windsor Castle.
