London 1711, Maker's Mark Partially Rubbed (Possibly 'Io')




Of plain squat circular form in the 17th century manner, with lightly rounded base edges,

the verso with centering dot and scratch engraved with owner's initials G over S * A,

together with lion's head erased, Britannia mark, and date letter for 1711,

with partially rubbed or poorly struck maker's mark; no crests or removals; good gauge silver

(The maker's mark at this time would have consisted of the first two letters of the last name).



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 for age with normal wear and patination; minor small dents only


1.75" High x 2.75" Wide / 2 oz.






PRICE : Please Inquire
