A 15-inch silver-gilt punch ladle with rococo decoration, made in Edinburgh 1819 by George McHattie, also engraved "LUCIFER".
Price: £2,950.00
                                                                      Lucifer was a celebrated race horse (1813-1821), out of Whitworth and Hambleton Mare, which won the Edinburgh and Caledonian Hunt Meeting at Musselburgh on October 11th 1819.  The 'prize‘ raised then by 14 subscribers of ten guineas each’ was ‘the gold cup, value 100 guineas … surplus (to be) paid to the owners in specie’.  It is possible to infer that this ladle formed part of, or was made from, the extra payment.
                                                                     Lucifer went on to have a successful racing career and was renamed Clootie around 1820.  Reporting on his death in 1821, the Sporting Magazine recorded that: "He was quite well the night before."
