The Mugs stand on a cast and applied spreading foot and display a baluster shaped body with slightly flared rim. The scroll handle is decorated with leaf capping and the front of the main body is engraved with a contemporary Crest. The Mugs are in excellent condition and are very well marked in the foot. It is most unusual to find pairs of mugs from this George II period. The interiors display fine hammer marks from when they were originally raised, which is always a desirable feature to see.



William Grundy was apprenticed to Edward Vincent and entered his first mark as a large worker on 23rd December, 1743. He had workshops in Fetter Lane when these Mugs were made and had a reputation as a quality maker of hollowware.
