 EARLY GEORGE III SILVER TUMBLER

William Caldecott, London, 1764


    

 

    

 

 The round tumbler raised from a single sheet and well weighted at the base, with an incised line or rolled over

edge to the rim, marked verso and gilded on the interior

 

 

Tumblers date from the 17th century, designed so that the above spillage would

not occur when a pretty face momentarily distracted a gentleman.  

Its heavier base would cause the cup to right itself,

thus preserving both his drink - and dignity.

 

Condition : Excellent, with good marks; several minor scuffs; no monogram or crest removal

 

2-5/8" Wide x 2.5"H / 2.8 oz.

 

 SOLD

 

#6326
