George II Silver Coconut Cup
An antique silver mounted coconut cup with engraved and scalloped decoration and standing on three decorative silver feet. Height 10 cms. Diameter 8.5 cms. Makers mark only for William Bond & James Phipps, London. Circa 1755.
This charming silver mounted coconut cup is basically in good condition with no restoration. The silver is in very good order with just a few minor dinks around the surface. The makers mark is clear to read. There is a sizeable crack to the coconut and it will not hold water.

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.
Drinking vessels formed from the coconut were prized in early times for their healing powers. The coconut cup is a variety of standing cup, made and used in Europe in the 15th and 16th Century, with a revival in Georgian England. Usually they have a pedestal foot or 3 ornamental feet and are mounted in silver or Old Sheffield plate.
