A beautiful English Christening cup with tapered cylindrical form, parallel reeded bands, chevron detail at the top and base, and elegant scroll handle. It is engraved on the front in script, 'From AEG to ET'.
The presentation mug has the British hallmarks for London and while definitely Georgian, the marks are difficult to distinguish whether the monarch is George III or George IV. The maker's mark is also partially obscured with only the first of two initials clear, the letter C. We believe that the latest possible date for registration, 1829 is most likely.
The mug is 2 5/8" high with a 2" opening and a diameter of 2 1/2" at the base. It is sterling silver and weighs 98.2 grams. There is a minor light dimple on one side, a couple of minor ding on the rim, and some age related tarnish but overall this Georgian piece is in excellent condition and a terrific addition to a collection of baby or christening mugs.
