This rare antique silver tankard is in very good condition. The lid and body have matching silver marks which are easy to read. The handle has a maker's mark. Good patina. The engraved crest and cartouche are still crisp but unlikely to be contemporary. 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.
