Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
Once separated, each beaker is encircled with impressive reed decoration reproducing the bilge, quarter and head hoop of a barrel, in addition to engraved vertical stave joints.
The body of each beaker is ornamented with a bright cut engraved crest* depicting a wyvern** with wings elevated on a wheel erect.
These impressive Victorian beakers have gilded interiors.
* This crest pertains to the Somerville family.
** The wyvern is a mythical, dragon-like beast with two legs, feet like eagles' claws, two wings, and a body which curves seamlessly into a tail.
