The surface of this antique silver mug is embellished with an exceptional contemporary bright cut engraved coast of arms and crest depicting a demi-stag chained and collared.

This antique mug has a fine colour and patination*. This impressive antique silver mug was crafted by the renowned London silversmiths Henry Chawner. Such small Georgian tankards are becoming increasingly difficult to locate; period tankards of this size would have been crafted for a lady. * Patination or Patina is a subtle colouration or tarnish which forms on the surface of some metals, produced by oxidation or other chemical processes. A good patina proffers an aesthetically pleasing look.
