RARE SMALL QUEEN ANNE BRITANNIA STANDARD MUG OR TANKARD

Matthew Cooper (marked rubbed), London, 1705-6

 

Rare Small Queen Anne Britannia Standard Mug (Possibly for Child), Matthew Cooper (marked rubbed), London, 1705-6 

 

The rare small mug or tankard with slightly tapering sides and strap handle,
possibly a child's or christening mug,
the body centering a vacant cartouche within fish scale and scroll chasing,
sided by a gadrooned upper girdle between engraved vertical leaflets,
a lower band of chased upright lobes and flutes between further engraved leaflets and trellis diapering,

and a wide-reeded band at the base

   

Note on Maker Attribution : Similar CO marks are given to several makers of this time period.

Another quite similar mark is that of John Cory.

As Matthew Cooper was the choice of a previous London vendor,

I have chosen to remain with that attribution.

 

Ref : This decoration is characteristic of the late 17th and early 18th centuries tankards.
A c1690 lidded tankard with similar chased girdle, and upright lobes and flutes

is illustrated "Antique Silver", Peter Waldron, p. 198, pl. 628.

 

Condition : Excellent color; marks rubbed but legible;

one small repair at the base of one flute and related compression crease;

base of handle resoldered to body; without further repairs, holes, erasures or thinning

 

3.5" High / 2.5" Diameter (Top), 2.75" (Base) / 3.76ozs
