Francis Cargeeg copper charger
A large hand planished copper charger with typical celtic influenced design, made by Francis Cargeeg, circa 1940.
The charger is marked with Cargeeg’s “treskele”, an etched and engraved trademark. There is a small catch attached to the back to enable this charger to be hung on a wall.
This particular design is illustrated in the book, Cornish Art Metalwork by Colin Pill, page 107. An identical charger is also held in the collection of the Penlee House Gallery and Museum in Penzance, link below:
Dimensions: 15 1/2″ in diameter by 2″ high
