Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The surface of this 17th century tankard plain and unembellished, encircled with an applied moulded border to the upper rim.
This antique quart tankard* retains the original double stepped flat topped, hallmarked cover surmounted with an impressive volute scrolling thumbpiece.
The cover is further ornamented with a band of tooled decoration to the rim accented with an applied shaped thumbpiece to the anterior edge.
This antique sterling silver tankard is fitted with a hallmarked S scroll handle with ribbed ornamentation to the upper portion, in addition to a plain shaped lower terminal.
The spreading collet foot is encircled with bands of applied moulded decoration.
* 1 Imperial quart = 2 pints / 1.1 litres
NOTE: After surviving the Great Fire of London the records at the London Assay office were destroyed by fire in 1681; their catalogues and documentation began again in 1697. Due to this unfortunate event we are unable to associate a maker to this tankard.
