William Cripps, London, 1763




In the late 17th century manner, but of heavier gauge silver, finely chased as one would expect from William Cripps*, the straight sided cup with flared upper rim, bossed out footrim and sided by flat S-scroll handles, the lower body with curved lobes and fluted below a band of rope-chasing, sided by punched leaves and dots, the front with a floral and foliate bordered cartouche with the Roman block initial M (appears period and possibly original); crisp marks verso (Grimwade #3058)


Condition : Excellent quality, patination and condition


* William Cripps, working from 1738-1767, apprenticed to the well known

Huguenot silversmith David Willaume. 

"As one might expect from his training under David Willaume,

Cripps became an accomplished craftsman and a versatile exponent of the rococo style;

to judge from his surviving pieces, he enjoyed a considerable clientele".
