M. FORD CREECH ANTIQUES & FINE ARTS
RARE SMALL QUEEN ANNE BRITANNIA STANDARD MUG OR TANKARD
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
