Description


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


The lower portion of this presentation cup is embellished with exceptional chased fluted ornamentation.


The plain upper portion is embellished with a contemporary bright cut engraved crest of a lion passant to one side and a ship's sail fastened to its mast to the other.


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


The cup retains the original hallmarked push fit domed cover encircled with further fluted decoration to the domed portion.


This impressive cover is surmounted with an exceptional fluted sterling silver ovoid shaped finial.


The rim of the cover is encompassed with an applied fluted decorated border, in a swirl design.


The sleeve of the cover is further ornamented to either side with the aforementioned crests to the body.


This imposing Georgian cup is fitted with two impressive elongated C shaped handles, each with bands of applied moulded ornamentation in addition to a birfucating spiralling upper terminal in junction with the body.


This magnificent example of Georgian silverware is supported by a pedestal foot encompassed with further chased 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 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.

This antique silver presentation cup is a superior gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.

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

The full hallmarks to the sleeve of the cover are all very clear; these hallmarks are struck deeply due to the exceptional gauge of silver.
