About the object
These exceptionally rare Beakers are plain in design, with slightly tapering sides. The smaller beaker fits inside the larger one and both have gilded interiors. Most unusually the smaller one has a cover, with suspensory ring, so that the contents would not be contaminated while on a military campaign.
The front of both beakers are engraved with a contemporary cypher, with foliate sprigs below and the Coronet of a Baron above. Each piece is well marked and in excellent condition. Due to their very unusual nature we have concluded that they must have been a special commission, from this important silversmith, who was patronised by the Royal and Noble families.
Height of nest: 3 inches, 7.5cm.
Diameter of the cover: 2.9 inches, 7.25cm.
