Description


This magnificent antique Charles II sterling silver tankard has a plain tapering cylindrical form onto a spreading collet style foot.


The surface of this 17th century tankard plain and unembellished, encircled with an applied moulded border to the upper rim.


This antique quart tankard* retains the original double stepped flat topped, hallmarked cover surmounted with an impressive volute scrolling thumbpiece.


The cover is further ornamented with a band of tooled decoration to the rim accented with an applied shaped thumbpiece to the anterior edge.


This antique sterling silver tankard is fitted with a hallmarked S scroll handle with ribbed ornamentation to the upper portion, in addition to a plain shaped lower terminal.


The spreading collet foot is encircled with bands of applied moulded decoration.


* 1 Imperial quart = 2 pints / 1.1 litres


NOTE: After surviving the Great Fire of London the records at the London Assay office were destroyed by fire in 1681; their catalogues and documentation began again in 1697. Due to this unfortunate event we are unable to associate a maker to this tankard.


Date: 1681

Condition


This antique tankard is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the body are very clear.

The hallmarks to the surface of the cover and maker's mark to the handle have slight wear in keeping with age and location, but remain legible.


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