This is a charming little mug and would make an excellent baby gift
Marks. Stamped underneath with a full set of English silver hallmarks. The maker’s mark “F.S within a circle of dots” is unattributed.
Literature. The term “mug” is traditionally used for a single-handed, lidless drinking vessel. 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.
In very good condition. Superb colour. Sharp engraving. This mug has been water tested and does not leak. Minor wear compatible with its age.
