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
The silver mug is in very good condition. Excellent colour. With a full set of clear English silver hallmarks underneath. The makers mark is badly struck. The engravings are sharp, probably 19th century. 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.
