Description

A good antique sterling silver tankard with domed hinged lid and plain baluster design with coopered banding. Attractive strapwork to the top of the handle. Uninscribed. Owners initials hand engraved on the handle. Contains 1050 ml. Weight 871 grams, 28 troy ounces. Height 20 cms. Diameter 12 cms (top and bottom). London 1754. Maker Robert Albin Cox.

Condition

- This fine tankard is in very good condition with no damage or restoration. Uninscribed. Good weight and colour. Fully marked with clear silver stamps inside the lid and underneath the body. The handle is unmarked but has the (probably original) owners initials engraved. A nice feature is the mark on top of the handle where the thumb piece has been touching over the centuries (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.

Elected to the livery 1791, prime warden 1880. Died 1826. Arthur Grimwade notes that due to Cox’s apparent longevity it's likely he had a son with the same name.
