Literature. The term “mug” is traditionally used for a single-handed, lidless drinking vessel although these are often known as “tankards”. They are nearly all of either pint or half pint capacity. Antique silver mugs are very rarely found as early as tankards, the earliest seeming to date from about 1680

Condition

In very good condition. Lovely colour.
