I am particularly fond of the proportions of late 17th and very early 18th century silver tankards,
However, due to usage, most Charles II tankards still existing are not in excellent condition.
So herein is the best of both worlds, the 17th century form,
made by one of London's finest late 19th century silversmiths, Gibson & Langman.
In 1880, Gibson & Langman established the Goldsmith and Silversmiths Co.,
at 112 Regent Street, London. In 1893, the absorbed A.B. Savory & Sons, and in 1898,
became the well known Goldsmiths & Silversmiths Co Ltd.
In 1952, Goldsmiths & Silversmiths Co Ltd. was amalgamated with Garrard & Co Ltd..
The firm participated in a number of national and international exhibitions,
including Indian and Colonial Exhibition (London, 1886), Paris (1889), Chicago (1893), California (1894), Paris (1900)
and Franco-British Exhibition (London, 1908).
