Beaker

Silver

Origin: East Anglia, probably Norwich area

Date: Mid 17th century

14.3 cm height; 195 g weight

Marks/Maker: Leopard or lion's head, TS in monogram, T in a shaped shield

Provenance: Benjamin Samuel of Norwich; William Minet, FSA

Presented by Miss Susan Minet, 1949; WA1949.179

T. Schroder (2009), no. 14

As many as 23 pieces of plate have been noted with two of the three marks appearing on this beaker (TS and the leopard's head). But most of the others in the group combine these two marks with a G and a fleur-de-lis. The exact significance of the marks remains unclear.

Information derived from T. Schroder, British and Continental Gold and Silver in the Ashmolean (2009)
