Code: FA0451


W: 16cm (6.3")H: 12cm (4.7")D: 9.5cm (3.7")


Very nice early Georgian silver loving cup with gilt wash interior and later embossed and engraved decoration. One side has an engraved cartouche with the monogram J and S entwined with "Feast Of Saint Joseph" engraved around them. 

Hallmarked for London 1748. The makers initials are partly obscured by the embossing but I think they may well be that of Philip Shaw.

It measures 12cm (4 3/4") high, 16cm (6 1/4") wide across the handles and 9.5cm (3 3/4") rim to rim. It weighs 295g/9.5ozt. 

Condition is very good with no damage or repairs and light surface wear.
