RARE QUEEN ANNE BRITANNIA SILVER BEAKER

William Gibson, London, 1702

 

 

 

Of heavy gauge silver in the Charles II form, the tapering circular body with a part-fluted lower section below a rope-work border sided by punched decoration, reeded footrim; marked along upper rim, the marks with some expected wear; the interior showing good hammer marks*

“Beakers are usually made in three parts, the sides being made from sheet which is hammered into the round and then seamed vertically, the base and foot wire applied separately.  The form of the beaker varies very little from the 17th to the 19th centuries….Beakers are comparatively rare from this (Queen Anne) period.”
