Composite Sterling Silver Presentation Cups - Antique

An exceptional, fine and impressive composite pair of antique English sterling silver presentation cups; an addition to our ornamental silverware collection

SKU A2918


These exceptional antique sterling silver presentation cups have a bell shaped form onto a plain pedestal and circular domed foot.

The surface of each cup is embellished with impressive chased floral, scroll and leaf decoration incorporating a large scroll bordered shaped vacant cartouche to one side and an impressive horse racing scene to the other.

Each cup is further ornamented with an applied girdle to the centre of the body and features a chased decorated phoenix design to the lower portion of the posterior side.

The feet of these impressive presentation cups are encircled with chased leaf decorated borders.

One cup was crafted by the Victorian London silversmith Robert Harper in 1856 and the other was made by the Georgian silversmith Matthew West in Dublin, circa 1780; these presentation cups bear the same chased ornamentation and sit well together as a matching pair.

Maker: Robert Harper / Matthew West

These antique presentation cups are a very good gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in excellent presentation condition.

The chased decoration is very sharp.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the Victorian cup are very clear, those to the Georgian cup show wear in keeping with age.

Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of these examples of Irish silver.
