Antique Georgian Sterling Silver Quart Tankard
Offered by AC Silver
The body of the tankard is encircled with an applied girdle and embellished with exceptional later chased decoration depicting a man ploughing land using horses in a rural village scene.
To one side the tankard is further ornamented with a fine and impressive bright cut engraved coat of arms** divided quarterly per saltire with four lions rampant below a coronet with lion rampant supporters to either side.
This antique George III tankard retains the original hinged hallmarked domed cover surmounted with a fine and impressive pierced decorated shaped thumbpiece and embellished with contemporary engraved initials and encircled with a later chased rural village scene and foliage decoration.
The hinge is decorated with pendant drop style ornamentation.
The large tankard is fitted with a S scroll handle ornamented with an impressive heart shaped decorated terminal.
*Imperial quart = 2 pints/1.14 litres
** This coat of arms has been researched and a definite identification has not been forthcoming.
It is fair to say the likelihood is that the arms are of Continental origin, possibly Holland, Belgium or Sweden.
The coronet signifies a noble family.
