Tumbler cup

Silver

Origin: York

Date: 1682-1683?

8.7 cm diameter; 6 cm height; 121 g weight

Marks/Maker: York, 1679-80 or 1682-3, maker's mark of Marmaduke Best

Heraldry: Arms of the Company of Linenweavers of York

Provenance: Company of Linenweavers of York

Bequeathed by A. T. Carter Bequest, 1947; WA1947.39

T. Schroder (2009), no. 24

The cup is engraved with a coat of arms and supporters and the inscription 'This Bought att the Charge of ye Cumpay - of Lening Weauers Robert Baines Mast Ano: 1685'. Since the inscription post-dates the cup by five or six years the cup was probably bought second-hand. The quality of the engraving, however, is unusually high for York at this date.

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