A very fine early George III Tumbler Cup made in London in 1761 by Fuller White.


The Tumbler Cup is of an unusual form, with slightly baluster shape and everted rim, reminiscent of the design of Scottish Tumbler Cups. The base is very well marked and the front of the main body is engraved with a contemporary shield shaped Armorial. It is unusual to find a full Coat of Arms engraved on a Tumbler Cup, as often they are just engraved with a Crest or initials. This piece is in excellent condition and displays very fine interior gilding. The Armorial is that of Wall of Hereford, Leominster and the Counties of Salop, Hants and Worcester, granted in 1594. They quarter those of Hankins, of Greenhouse, co. Gloucester and Worcester. These are specifically those of Dr Martin Wall of Oxford, academic and medical practitioner, who married Miss Mary Humphreys. She was the niece and sole heiress of DAvenant Hawkins, a very wealthy man, thus the quartering. Dr Martin Wall died in 1824. He was the son of another celebrated doctor - Dr John Wall of Worcester, founder of the famous porcelain factory and also eminent as both a medical practitioner and painter.

Height: 1.8 inches, 4.5cm.
