An antique sterling silver 2 handled porringer from the reign of George III with pretty decoration and an applied foot. Embossed decoration with flowers and leaves to the body and a ribbed border. To the front there is a large vacant cartouche. Height 10.5 cms. Diameter of top 10 cms. Weight 162 grams, 5.2 troy ounces. London 1773. Maker I.D.
This antique silver cup is in good usable condition with no damage or restoration. Good colour. Clear English silver marks underneath. The decoration is still crisp and has good definition. Minor surface dinks.

The solder marks underneath the porringer are from the origin manufacture - these are not signs of repair but just the old blobby mercury solder which was used to all make all the silver items at that time and is absolutely genuine.

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.
Porringers are two handled bowls and some have a cover. They can also be known as caudle cups although the origin of the porringer was for porridge and the caudle cup was for a type of broth. From the eighteenth century onwards, porringers and cups and covers were used mainly as centrepieces or ornaments. In recent times they have seen a resurgence in popularity for drinking and on the dining table. They make a very attractive baby gift.
