Early Charles II Silver Porringer

Date: 1661

Stock Number: 6698

An important piece of early English antique silver. A very large sized sterling silver cup with side handles crowned with faces. The hand beaten finish is typical of this early date and is very appealing. Superb colour. The body is decorated all round with deep relief flowers and foliage, very florid, as you'd expect at this date. To the front and back there is a cartouche containing a hand engraved armorial. Weight 710 grams, 22.8 troy ounces. Diameter 13.75 cms. Height 14.5 cms (15.5 cms to top of handle). London 1661. Very historic - this was made in the 2nd year of Charles II reign after the restoration of the monarchy and 5 years before the Great Fire of London. Maker IW in a shield with a pellet below (see Jacksons page 120).
