He served as Colonel of the Staffordshire Militia during the American Revolution and again during the French Revolution soon after. He received many titles including Lord Lieutenant of Staffordshire and Lord Lieutenant of Anglesey. This has made it's way down through 2+ centuries of the Paget family in excellent condition.

The funnel was expertly crafted, delicately hand-hammered from the interior and showing no seam. Markings include the lion passant, W. G maker mark, "q" year mark, and London lion city mark.

These marks show some degree of wear and required close inspection. The front features a hound or demi-tiger of some sort perched upon a crown. The beast appears to almost smile pleasantly. The banner beneath feature the Paget family motto "Per Suo il Contrario" or "by it's opposite" or "to the contrary, " a truly curious choice!

The reverse has a ring next to the markings for affixing this funnel to a necklace. Measures 2 1/8" from mouth to spout and 1 7/8" wide at the top.
