Description


This exceptional antique Georgian sterling silver quart* tankard has a plain tapering cylindrical form onto a spreading circular foot.


The body of this sterling silver beer tankard is embellished with exceptional later cast and applied scrolling ornamentation incorporating floral sprays; as often the case with this type of piece, the ornamentation will have been implemented during the Victorian period and has been hallmarked accordingly.


The decoration to the tankard incorporates a plain paralleling matte border in addition to the original applied girdle and applied moulded border to the rim.


This Georgian tankard retains the original hinged domed cover encompassed with later chased floral and foliate decoration reflecting the designs to the body; the cover bears no hallmarks, as to be expected with this type of provincial silverware.


The upper portion of the cover is embellished with a bright cut engraved coat of arms incorporating party per fess, in chief the first and third cantons a rose, the second a cross fleury with five birds, and to the base a chained gate.


The posterior portion of the cover is surmounted with a fine and impressive pierced decorated scrolling thumbpiece to one side of the hinge, which is flanked with pendant drop style ornamentation to the upper portion of the handle.


This antique sterling silver tankard is fitted with a hallmarked S scroll handle ornamented with an impressive heart shaped decorated terminal; the terminal is embellished with a bright cut engraved coat of arms surmounted with a phoenix's head between two wings, all above the motto 'Nocet Differre Paratis' - Those who are prepared, should never delay.


This exceptional example of Georgian silverware was crafted by the renowned and collectable Newcastle silversmith Dorothy Langlands.


* Imperial quart = 2 pints/1.14 litres

Condition


This antique sterling silver beer tankard is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition in keeping with age.

The later cast, applied and chased decoration is very sharp and the bright cut engraved heraldry is very crisp.

The maker's mark struck to the handle and hallmarks struck to the surface of the tankard are all clear; the original full hallmarks to the body have been overlaid with the hallmarked applied decoration.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of antique silverware.
