The body of this colonial tankard is embellished with four impressive chased scrolling leaf panels, two accented with suspended floral sprays, all encompassed with a scale motif background.
The anterior panel of the tankard bears the contemporary engraved presentation inscription 'Presented to Dr I Kellie by Captn Jervis, 56th NI for his care and attention to Mrs Jervis During Illness'.
The hourglass shaped panels to either side of the tankard are flanked with plain scroll bordered vacant, subtly convex cartouches.
This silver tankard retains the original hinged cover surmounted with a fine and impressive lobed, scrolling thumbpiece and encompassed with further chased floral and foliate decoration to the domed portion.
The forth panel to the posterior portion of the body is plain and accommodates the impressive opposing scroll handle, accented with a leaf decorated thumbpiece.
The interior of this impressive colonial tankard retains the original gilding.
