EARLY GEORGE III SILVER TUMBLER
William Caldecott, London, 1764
The round tumbler raised from a single sheet and well weighted at the base, with an incised line or rolled over
edge to the rim, marked verso and gilded on the interior
Tumblers date from the 17th century, designed so that the above spillage would
not occur when a pretty face momentarily distracted a gentleman.
Its heavier base would cause the cup to right itself,
thus preserving both his drink - and dignity.
Condition : Excellent, with good marks; several minor scuffs; no monogram or crest removal
2-5/8" Wide x 2.5"H / 2.8 oz.
