Makers mark. The maker’s mark on this tankard was previously attributed to Hans Kolb. It has since been reattributed to Hieronymous Wolfgang Kern by Seling, in Die Augsburger Gold-und Silberschmiede 1529-1868, Munich, 2007, p. 280, no. 1515; however he notes that Kolb and two other makers with the same initials should be considered.
This parcel gilt tankard is in very good condition. German silver marks on the lid and base. Assay scrape to the base. 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.
