A handsome early English sterling silver mug with a slightly baluster shape on a spreading foot. Good plain style typical of the period. Excellent colour and weight. To the front there is a fine contemporary hand engraved armorial within a decorative cartouche. To the top of the handle are two owners initials. Contains 450 ml. Weight 316 grams, 10.1 troy ounces. Height 11 cms (to thumb piece). Diameter of top 8 cms. London 1723. Maker Thomas Farren.


This early English silver mug is in very good condition. No damage or restoration. Excellent colour. Good weight. The hand engraved armorial and cartouche are contemporary and still crisp. There is a mark on the inside where the handle is pushed in a little. The silver marks underneath are clear and easy to read – also present is the scratch weight and owners initials (which differ from those on the handle). 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.
