Description


This magnificent antique George V sterling silver presentation cup/bowl has a circular plain rounded form to a circular spreading foot.


The surface of this antique cup is plain and encircled with an applied moulded girdle.


One side of the body is ornamented with the contemporary bright cut engraved coat of arms* depicting quarterly, 1st and 4th three Fleurs-de-lis, 2nd and 3rd three lions passant guardant in pale, all within a bordure company, supported by a panther plain collared and chained, charged with pommes and a wyvern** with wings endorsed holding in the mouth a hand couped at the wrist.


This coat of arms is surmounted with a bright cut engraved crest displaying a portcullis, nailed and chained, all above the motto 'Mutare Vel Timere Sperno' - I scorn to change or to fear.


This cup is fitted with two impressive and large elevated opposing scroll style handles embellished with scrolling upper terminal accented with a layered thumbpiece.


This fine example of antique silverware is fitted to an associated circular painted wood plinth, encircled with vacant silver inscription plaques; the plaques may be engraved with a personal inscription if so desired.


This magnificent cup was crafted by William Hutton & Sons Ltd in 1914 (t) and the hallmarked sterling silver plaques to the associated plinth bear the marks for London 1882 (G).


* This coat of arms pertains to the Duke of Beaufort of Somerset.


** The wyvern is a mythical, dragon-like beast with two legs, feet like eagles' claws, two wings, and a body which curves seamlessly into a tail.


Date: 1914

Condition


This antique cup is a superior gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.

The bright cut engraved coat of arms is very crisp.


Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the bowl and part hallmarks to each plaque are all very clear.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this fine example of antique silverware.
