The upper body of this antique beaker is embellished with engraved floral and foliate festoon decoration accented with three circular cartouches.
Each cartouche is encompassed with a wheat ear style wreath border accented with a ribbon tie to the lower portion.
The engraved stylised scene to each cartouche include: a man in a field with two sheep, a lounging man releasing a bird from a cage and a male character reclining.
The lower portion of this antique beaker is encircled with a band of bright cut engraved styled tied wreath decoration.
This Russian beaker retains the original gilt interior.
The underside of the beaker bears 'zig zag' lines created by the assay master to test the silver content.
