FINE & RARE 18thC ANTIQUE QUEEN ANNE BRITANNIA SILVER PORRINGER CUP LONDON 1713
This is a superb Queen Anne Britannia standard Porringer / Caudle cup of a good size made by the London silversmith Richard Green in 1713. He was a large worker specialising in Porringers and Tankards and his work rarely comes onto the market. In 1696, so extensive had become the melting and clipping of coinage that the silversmiths were forbidden to use the sterling standard for their wares, but had to use a new higher standard, 95.84 % Britannia standard and new hallmarks were introduced as the ones on this cup. They continued until the old standard of 92.5 % was restored in 1720.

The lower portion of this 18th century silver porringer bowl is embellished with chased alternating fluted decoration accented with engraved foliate motifs. The upper portion is encircled with a chased rope twist decorated girdle flanked with engraved foliate motifs. The decoration to the front incorporates a vacant cartouche bordered with scale motif diaper pattern and large scrolling designs and is. Fitted with two cast S scroll handles.

It is in excellent antique condition with a lovely patina and no damage, dings or repairs, the vacant cartouche has no erasures and it has no later engravings unlike most early porringers that come onto the market today. The dimensions are in the listing photos and it has a weight of 250g. Please study the photos as they form an important part of the description.

The hallmarks are good although the London and Britannia mark are a little rubbed. Date letter'S' for 1713 is very clear, Richard Green's makers mark is also good.
