This Victorian travelling beaker is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.

The engine turned decoration is all very crisp, despite the concentric collapsing nature of the beaker.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the upper segment and interior of the base, in addition to part hallmarks to the surface of each further concentric segment are all clear.


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