A good antique sterling silver tankard with domed hinged lid and plain baluster design. Attractive strapwork to the top of the handle. An unusual feature is the engraved decoration to the heart shaped finial at the base of the handle. Uninscribed. Contains 900 ml. Weight 717 grams, 23 troy ounces. Height 19.5 cms. Diameter 9.75 cms (top). London 1768. Maker John King.
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 and underneath there is another initial in cursive script. A nice feature is the mark on top of the handle where the thumb piece has been touching for 245 years (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.
