2005: George IV Sterling Silver Two-Handled Cup
Item Details
Description
Good George IV Sterling Silver Two-Handled Cup and Cover, hallmarked London, 1822-1823, by Rebecca Emes and Edward Barnard, of campana form, decorated with a rich cast and chased band of grapevine banding above and a gadrooned calyx below, with a pair of elaborated imbricated acanthus scroll handles, the interior gilt, the fitted domed lid with an acanthus leaf band and edge and a large acanthus bud finial, the whole raised on a knopped and domed foot en suite, h. 12-3/4", w. 9-1/2", dia. 6-3/4", 51.89 t. oz.
Condition
Overall Condition: Very Good. Scattered pinpoint dings and light scuffs consistent with age and use, but otherwise fine, with no breaks, dents or repairs noted. Excellent chasing and details. Light inventory/scratch marks on the underside. Hallmarks (on the body, near the rim): 1) the sterling lion passant; 2) the London leopard's head; 3) the date letter "g" for 1822-1823; 4) the George IV bust duty mark; and 5) the "RE/EB, in a quatrefoil" maker's mark of Emes and Barnard. Marks lightly worn but entirely legible. The interior lid is part-marked, as are all elements of the finial, which disassembles into four pieces (bud, calyx, collar and locking nut) for polishing. A striking and superior piece.
