Antique English George III Silver Tankard 1759

This is a wonderful large antique English George III sterling silver tankard/ beer stein with hallmarks for London 1759, and makers' mark of Thomas Whipham & Charles Wright.

This exceptional beer tankard has a plain tapering cylindrical form onto a spreading base. It features an elegant hinged raised cover with an impressive scrolling thumbpiece, a bold scroll handle with a stunning heart-shaped terminal.

The body is attractively plain and encircled with an applied band of reeded decoration.

It bears an interesting later inscription:

'To The Under Sheriff H. Greenall Esq. from The High Sheriff of Lancashire. Wm. C. Jones Esp. 1899-1900.'

It bears full hallmarks: the lion passant for sterling silver, the leopard head for London, the letter D for 1759, and the makers' mark CTWW for Thomas Whipham & Charles Wright.

There is no mistaking its unique quality and design, which is sure to make it a treasured piece of any discerning collector.

In excellent condition with clear hallmarks and no dings, dents or signs of repair. Please see photos for confirmation.
