Description


These exceptional vintage silver goblets, in sterling standard, have a plain circular bell shaped form to a circular tapering pedestal and plain domed circular foot.


The surface of each goblet is plain and unembellished, apart from the feature hallmarks.


The cast silver pedestal of each goblet is embellished with a undulating layered design, accented with a matte texture.


The underside of the plain circular feet are ornamented with the commemorative engraved inscription 'Bristol 600, 1373-1973'** incorporating the Bristol assay hallmark*, in addition to the consecutive edition numerals 'No 13' and 'No 14'.


These exceptional vintage sterling silver goblets retain the original gilded interiors.


* The Bristol 600 exhibition was a celebration in 1973 of the 600th anniversary of King Edward III giving Bristol the right to call itself a county.


** The Bristol assay hallmark of a ship issuing from a castle was adopted as the town mark in 1700; the town was appointed to the assay offices at this time. Although Bristol had an established assay office in the eighteenth century, most Bristol gold and silversmiths preferred to use London and in the nineteenth century they used Exeter; to a large extent, this action kept the Exeter assay office working during its declining years.
