Sterling Silver Presentation Cup - Art Nouveau Style - Antique Edwardian

An exceptional, fine and impressive antique Edwardian English sterling silver presentation cup in the Art Nouveau style with North East of England interest; an addition to our presentation silverware collection

SKU A1894


This exceptional Edwardian sterling silver presentation cup has a plain rounded bell shaped form onto a circular spreading pedestal foot.

The body of this antique Art Nouveau cup is embellished with a bright cut engraved coat of arms, pertaining to the town Gateshead*, comprised of a crest of a goat's head erased, above an angular escutcheon with a gate tower and the motto 'caput inter nubila condit' - it's head is hidden in the clouds.

This sterling silver cup is fitted with three impressive scrolling arms, embellished with Art Nouveau style shaped decorated sockets and bifurcating lower terminals.

This impressive presentation cup retains the original gilded interior.

If required, this antique cup could be supplied with a bespoke plinth with sterling silver plaque or band, suitable for a personal engraved inscription. This service would take approximately 6 weeks, whereas the cup can be dispatched separately prior to completion.

* The coat of arms for Gateshead was changed in the 1830's, replacing the goat's head (from which Gateshead takes its name) with a gate tower displayed in a shield; during the mid-19th century the motto 'caput inter nubila condit' was added. Further changes occurred when Gateshead was incorporated into a new metropolitan borough in 1975 and a new armorial bearings was created and the motto altered to 'in unity, progress'
