A very rare William III Britannia Standard 'Double Lobed' can shaped mug. Made in London in 1700 by John Cory.


The Mug is of the rare 'Can' form and is unusually decorated with two separate wide bands of vertical lobing. The lobing is divided by raised horizontal reeded bands and the slightly spreading foot is also decorated with reeding. The Mug has an 'S' scroll reeded handle and the base is engraved with a set of contemporary initials. This example is very well marked in the foot and has an excellent patina. This is only the second time we have seen this specific design. John Cory was a very fine maker, especially of mugs, who had workshops in Fleet Street 1697-1722. His first mark was entered in April, 1697, therefore this represents an early example of his work.
