The Mugs stand on an applied circular foot decorated with reeding. The slightly tapering sides have an everted rim and "tucked in" base, the typical design for this period. The plain scroll handles are attached to the main body with oval mouldings and the front of each piece is engraved with a contemporary mirror cipher. The mugs are in excellent condition, have a good colour and are very well marked in the foot. To find pairs of mugs is extremely unusual.

Richard Bayley was a specialist mug and tankard maker and had a long career, culminating in him being created Prime Warden of the Goldsmiths Company in 1751.

Height: 3.5 inches, 8.77cm.
Base Diameter: 2.9 inches, 7.25cm.
Weight: 14oz the pair.
