This very rare parcel gilt beaker is circular in form with slightly tapering sides. The exterior is unusually engraved in the Neo-Classical tradition and displays foliate garlands, swags tied with ribbons and an upper and lower band of blue bell drop motifs. The Beaker has a gilded interior and is very well marked. It is contained within its original silk lined leather case. Parcel gilt items are scarce and this piece would have been made for the very top end of the market. The quality of its design and production is exceptional.
