Judg­ing by the Hooton Pag­nell tureens, with Mary Cooke An­tiques, the finely fin­ished work of James Young is well worth seek­ing out. He was a Lon­don sil­ver­smith ac­tive dur­ing the sec­ond half of the 18th cen­tury, but ex­am­ples are scarce. These par­tic­u­larly ele­gant tureens of about 1785 are en­graved with the arms of the Wardes of Hooton Pag­nell Hall, near Don­caster, South York­shire. The fam­ily had bought the hall in 1703 from the owner of the fa­mous By­er­ley Turk

Stomach­ers, dec­o­ra­tive pan­els worn over the chest and stom­ach, went in and out of fash­ion from the 16th to the 18th cen­turies. They are un­likely to be re­vived, but, should you need one, Wit­ney An­tiques is a good place to look. It has a boned ex­am­ple worked with metal­lic threads in the early 18th cen­tury. It has re­tained its colours re­mark­ably well

Stun­ners and very noble prove­nances
