Condition


This antique presentation cup is a very good gauge of silver, fine quality and in excellent presentation condition.

The gilding shows some signs of wear in keeping with age.

The chased and embossed decoration is very sharp.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the cup are all very clear; the maker’s mark was not deeply struck and shows signs of wear, due to the location.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this fine example of Victorian silverware.
