A charming little early English silver mug of plain form. The body is raised from sheet and has a simple strap handle and an incised, reeded neck. This is the earliest type of mug. Contains 50 cc. Weight 27 grams. Height 4.25 cms. Diameter 4 cms. Spread across handle 6.25 cms. Sterling silver. Full English hallmarks for London 1683. Makers mark “C” enclosing “K” (see Jacksons Page 139)*.
This delightful little silver cup is in good but used condition with no signs of restoration. Good clear marks. Nice colour. There are signs of wear inside close to the handle (see photo).

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.

*There are no precise records of silver makers marks prior to 1681 as all records were destroyed in the fire at Goldsmiths Hall in that year when the Assay Office and apartments of the Assayer and Clerk in the south west wing of the building were burned down.
