This antique silver chalice cup is an exceptional gauge of silver for its type, exceptional quality and in excellent condition.

There is a minor opening to the upper knop, as can often be expected in keeping with age.

The chased and embossed decoration is all very sharp.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the chalice have wear in keeping with age and location; the first portion of the maker's mark has wear and is illegible.

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