This exceptional antique George IV sterling silver half pint tankard has a cylindrical shaped form onto a spreading collet style foot.

The body of this small silver tankard is encircled with two fine and impressive broad bands of tooled decoration, in addition to an applied moulded border to the rim.

The antique silver tankard retains the original hallmarked domed hinged cover encircled with further bands of tooled decoration; this unusual flanking hinge is an impressive example of engineering for the period and indicates the high quality of the piece.

The cover is surmounted with an impressive thumbpiece modelled in the form of a scallop shell.

The tankard is fitted with an impressive plain faceted angular handle with an incurved thumbpiece.

Such small antique tankards are becoming increasingly difficult to locate.
