  • George III period Sterling Silver 2-handled cup - maker' mark of Hester Bateman, London 1789

Description

Stamped with the maker's mark of the Queen of Silversmiths, Hester Bateman. Dated London 1789, it has an extremely clear and crisp set of 18th Century hallmarks, a testimony to the fact it hadn't been cleaned in years! For extra stability (when used as a vase) the base is loaded and capped with a circular-cut sheet of Old Sheffield Plate which is inscribed "A GIFT, JANUARY 1st, 1825"

Price: $3,500.00
