Full English hallmarks for London 1683.
Makers mark “C” enclosing “K” (see Jacksons Page 139)*.
Signed/Inscribed: *There are no precise records of silver makers marks prior to 1681 as all records were destroyed in the fire at Goldsmiths Hall in that year when the Assay Office and apartments of the Assayer and Clerk in the south west wing of the building were burned down.
This delightful little silver cup is in good but used condition. Good clear marks. Nice colour. There are signs of wear inside close to the handle (see photo). Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
