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

Condition

The silver mug is in very good condition. Good colour. Stamped underneath with a full set of English silver hallmarks.
