Description


This magnificent antique George III sterling silver cup and cover has a campania shaped form to a spreading pedestal foot.


The lower portion of this silver presentation cup is embellished with exceptional chased alternating bead and fluted ornamentation, all in swirl design.


The fluted decoration terminates with large chased scrolling leaf designs emanating towards the upper portion.


The decoration to the body incorporates a large shaped scroll bordered cartouche embellished with the contemporary bright cut engraved crest of a doe's head couped collared with a branch.


The posterior surface of this presentation cup bears a chased decorated fruiting vine design with suspended grape clusters and trailing scrolling leaf decoration.


The cup retains the original hallmarked push fit domed cover encircled with chased fluted and scrolling leaf bands in a swirl design, terminating with a paralleling scroll and leaf decorated border.


The cover is further ornamented to one side with the aforementioned crest to the body.


This impressive cover is surmounted with an exceptional sterling silver bulbous finial embellished with further fluted and leaf ornamentation.


The rim of the cover is encompassed with an applied gadroon decorated border.


This imposing Georgian cup is fitted with two impressive scrolling handles, each with exceptional leaf decorated thumbpiece and scrolling designs to either side of the handpiece.


This magnificent example of Georgian silverware is supported by a pedestal foot encompassed with further chased decoration, in addition to a gadroon decorated border; this ornamentation is identical to that of the cover.


By virtue of its size, this versatile cup could be used as a champagne cooler or a magnificent presentation cup.


If required, this antique 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.


Date: 1769

Condition


This antique silver cup and cover is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional presentation condition.

The chased decoration is all very sharp and the bright cut engraved crests are very crisp.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the cup and rim of the cover are all very clear; the hallmarks are struck deeply due to the exceptional gauge of silver.
