Circular, molded foot, plain body, the detachable scalloped rim with applied borders, engraved with a coat-of-arms on both parts, marked on base and rim, the latter with Wickes's maker's mark twice and earlier lion passant and leopard's head, the base with scratch weight 72=12.
In superb condition.
The arms are those of Contee for Alexander Contee (1691-1740), who emigrated from England and settled in Prince George's County, Maryland. Contee served as Clerk and Burgess for that county. He married Jane (c. 1703-1799), daughter of Colonel Thomas and Barbara (Dent) Brooke of Brookfield, on the upper Patuxent in Prince George's County.
Their daughter, Jane (1728-1812), to whom Alexander left "Buck's Range," a tract in Baltimore County, married John Hanson, President of the First Continental Congress. His statue is found in Statuary Hall, at the U.S. Capitol in Washington.
Contee's will, proved in 1741, includes a silver punch bowl among much other silver plate. The bowl descended within the family for five generations, passing to Douglas H. Thomas in 1876.
