Description

An exceptional, fine and impressive antique Georgian sterling silver half pint lady's tankard; part of our wine and drink related silverware collection.

This exceptional antique George III sterling silver half pint lady's tankard has a cylindrical tapering form.

The body of this solid silver tankard is encircled with two impressive broad bands of tooled decoration.

The antique silver tankard retains the original hallmarked flat hinged cover encircled with further bands of tooled decoration; this unusual flanking hinge is an impressive example of engineering for the period and indicates the high quality of the piece.

The cover is surmounted with an impressive tri-lobed thumbpiece, in addition to the protruding fingerpiece to the anterior edge.

This Georgian sterling silver tankard is fitted with an impressive plain faceted opposing scroll handle with an incurved thumbpiece and applied leaf design to the upper plateau.

Such small antique tankards are becoming increasingly difficult to locate; period tankards of this size would have been crafted for a lady.
