A magnificent early English silver flagon having a tall cylindrical body on a spreading base edged with reed banding. The almost flat cover has a simple curved thumbpiece. Good plain design. Uninscribed.
Contains 1350 ml.
Weight 1067 grams, 34.3 troy ounces.
Height 29cm (to top of thumb piece). Diameter 9.7cm (top).
Maker probably Robert Snow (see Dr David Mitchell’s “Silversmiths in Elizabethan and Stuart London”). This flagon appears to be one of his earliest recorded works.
Marks. Stamped on the lid and body with a full and matching set of English silver hallmarks.
This silver tankard is in very condition, particularly considering the early date of 1624. The hinge works well.
Maker: Robert Snow
Robert Snow, apprenticed to Simon Owen in 1606, free by service in 1614. He had a busy workshop, taking on nine apprentices between 1614 and 1638, some of whom, such as Peter Bettesworth, William Mouse and Daniel Wormleighton became successful plateworkers. Although active in the Livery from 1622, he was only elected as an Assistant in 1637, a year before his death. (D. M. Mitchell, Silversmiths in Elizabethan and Stuart London, Their Lives and Their Marks, Woodbridge, 2017, p. 471 and 472).
