A good early antique sterling silver tankard of cylindrical form with coopered bands and a shaped handle. Excellent plain styling. A nice detail is the decorative ribbed spine to the top of the handle. Uninscribed. Good colour. Owners initials “EH” etched to the top of the handle. Contains 450 ml. Weight 299 grams, 9.6 troy ounces. Height 11.5 cm. Spread 13.cm. Diameter 8 cm (top). London 1686. Maker “IC” probably John Cruttall* (ref. Dr David Mitchell “Silversmiths in Elizabethan and Stuart London”).
This superb mug is in very good condition for its age and has no repairs or restoration. Excellent colour. Marked underneath with a full set of clear English silver hallmarks. An attractive feature is the blobby mercury solder underneath which is completely original in the manufacture. There is a mark inside where the handle has pushed in a bit over the years. The mug has been water tested and does not leak.
Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
*The first surviving record at Goldsmiths Hall is the 1682 copper plate made to start the recording process again. This has recently prompted a study by Dr David Mitchell, supported by Goldsmiths Hall, resulting in the publication of his 2017 “Silversmiths in Elizabethan and Stuart London”. This reference work identifies previously unknown makers marks and assigns marks struck on existing plate to individuals (attributions for 540 separate marks).
