This exceptional George III sterling silver quart* tankard has a plain baluster form onto a spreading circular foot.

The body of this antique tankard is encircled with an applied girdle and embellished with exceptional later chased decoration depicting a man ploughing land using horses in a rural village scene.

To one side the tankard is further ornamented with a fine and impressive bright cut engraved coat of arms** divided quarterly per saltire with four lions rampant below a coronet with lion rampant supporters to either side.

This Georgian tankard retains the original hinged hallmarked domed cover surmounted with a fine and impressive pierced decorated shaped thumbpiece and embellished with contemporary engraved initials and encircled with a later chased rural village scene and foliage decoration.

The hinge is decorated with pendant drop style ornamentation.

This large tankard is fitted with a S scroll handle ornamented with an impressive heart shaped decorated terminal.

* Imperial quart = 2 pints/1.14 litres

** This coat of arms has been researched and a definite identification has not been forthcoming. It is fair to say the likelihood is that the arms are of Continental origin, possibly Holland, Belgium or Sweden. The coronet signifies a noble family.

This antique tankard is a very good gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional presentation condition.

The later chased decoration is very sharp.

Full hallmarks struck to the underside of the tankard and to the cover and maker’s mark struck to the handle, are all very clear; the date letter to the underside is slightly rubbed in keeping with age.

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


Length from back of handle to rim of cover 17cm/6.7"

Height to top of thumbpiece 20.1cm/7.8"

Diameter of body 11cm/4.3"
