A rare early English silver flat top lidded tankard in sterling silver with a scroll handle having a decorative thumb piece. Good patina and size. Lovely plain design and hand beaten silver. To the front there is a large contemporary armorial within plumage. Contains in excess of 1500 ml. Weight 1055 gms, 33.9 troy ounces. Height 18.5 cms (to top of thumb piece). Diameter 14 cms (lid), 12.5 cms (top), 14 cms (of base). Fully marked on lid and base, makers mark on the handle. London 1675. Maker’s mark AL* between 3 mullets (see Jacksons page 128) – noted as a tankard maker.
This rare antique silver tankard is in very good condition with no damage or apparent restoration. The lid and body have matching silver marks which are easy to read. The handle has a maker’s mark. Good patina. The engraved armorial within plumage is crisp and in keeping with the period.

*It is unusual to have a makers name for a piece of silver of this early date as there are no precise records of silver makers’ marks prior to 1697. All records were destroyed in the fire at Goldsmiths Hall in 1681 when the Assay Office and apartments of the Assayer and Clerk in the south west wing of the building were burned down. From 1697 onwards Goldsmiths Hall has preserved a complete record of workmens’s marks, addresses, together with their names and the dates. Sometimes the details of makers can be discovered from old records such as the inventories of noble houses and other institutions.
