Description


This exceptional antique Edwardian tyg* style sterling silver presentation cup/champagne bucket has a plain tapering shaped form.


The Art Nouveau style shaped body of this antique tyg cup is plain and embellished with the contemporary bright cut engraved initial 'V' within a naval crown**.


This impressive presentation cup is fitted with four impressive swept, shaped handles.


The lower terminals of each handle form plain curved feet, elevating the plateaued base of the antique champagne bucket from the supporting surface.


This versatile cup is a substantial size and if required could be used as a wine/bottle cooler; with the use of the four handles, this piece could easily be transferred down a dining table.


* A tyg is a large English mug/drinking vessel with three or more handles. The mug was made to be shared, and handed round between several drinkers.


** A naval crown is the base of a coronet surmounted with the bows and sails of ships. Originally this crown was awarded to the first Roman Military member to board an enemy ship, and later issued to maritime badges, shields of ships and coats of arms.


NOTE: The engraving increases the plausibility that the piece was acquired for use on a naval vessel, in addition to the contributing factor of the four steadying and stable legs/handles


Date: 1907
