A rare early English sterling silver cup of simple plain design. A superb example. There is a large contemporary hand engraved armorial to the front contained within plumage, the arms of Rous of Henham Hall, Suffolk. The round and weighted base allows the cup to stay upright when knocked from side to side. Good gauge silver. Light gilt interior. Contains 200 ml. Weight 140 grams, 4.5 troy ounces. Height 6 cms. Diameter 7.75 cms. London 1686. Maker John Sutton (Jackson Revised page 132)
This charming little silver cup is in very good condition with no damage or restoration. Excellent colour and original hand beaten finish. Crisp engraving. The silver marks are very legible with a little wear.

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.
Tumbler cups were made from the mid 17th century. They are made from thick gauge sheet silver which was hammered up so that the sides become thinner towards the top and the rounded base would have the greater weight. When they are knocked over they will automatically right themselves.

Arms. Sir John Rous, 2nd baronet, was High Sherriff of Suffolk in 1678, MP for Eye, 1687 and MP for Suffolk, 1689/90, dying in 1730.
