Description


This rare antique George II Newcastle sterling silver tankard has a plain tapering cylindrical form onto a spreading base.


The body is encircled with a plain girdle.


The front of the sterling silver tankard is embellished with the contemporary bright cut engraved initials 'GAY' framed between a barley stalk and a wheat ear.


The tankard retains the original hallmarked domed hinged cover with an impressive shaped pierced decorated thumbpiece.


The hinge has a pendant drop decoration to the upper face of the opposing scroll handle which displays the contemporary engraved initials 'GA' surmounted by 'Y'.


The handle has a shield shaped terminal.


This impressive tankard was crafted by the renowned Newcastle silversmith Thomas Makepeace I.


Date: 1732

Condition


This antique tankard is a very good gauge of silver, fine quality an in excellent condition, showing only a few minor blemishes in keeping with the age of the piece.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the body, and, as expected the maker's mark and lion passant to the rim of the cover, and maker's mark to the handle are clear, apart from the lion passant mark which is rubbed.

The tankard displays a fine set of full hallmarks considering their position on the surface of the body.


Reflections in photography may detract from the true representation of this example of Georgian silverware.
