Description


This magnificent antique George V sterling silver trophy cup and cover has a bell shaped form to a domed spreading pedestal foot.


The plain body of this impressive presentation cup is encircled with a plain applied moulded girdle in addition to a band of applied leaf ornamentation to the lower portion.


The underside of the vessel is embellished with large single leaf designs accented with a matte design, all conjoined with rounded arches, in addition to a stylised stemmed leaf design.


The flared upper rim is encompassed with a plain applied moulded border.


The cup retains the original hallmarked push fit domed cover encircled with an applied gadroon decoration to the rim.


This domed portion of the impressive cover is embellished with further arched leaf ornamentation encompassing a magnificent cast and finely chased pineapple style finial.


The interior of the cover and body retain the original gilding.


This imposing George V silver cup is fitted with two impressive tied branch shaped handles, each with a birfurcating upper terminal displaying the cross section of a branch grain, and the trifurcating lower terminals incorporating tiered leaf designs, all in junction with the body.


This magnificent example of antique silverware is supported by a pedestal foot encompassed with further applied gadroon decoration; this ornamentation is identical to that of the cover.


This cup is a superior gauge of silver and is the finest of its type you could hope to acquire.


If required, this antique silver trophy cup could be supplied with a bespoke ebonised black 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.
