An exceptionally fine George III Drinking Beaker made in London in 1790 by Henry Chawner.


The Beaker has an unusual flared form and stands on a reeded applied foot. The gauge of silver is extremely good and the interior is finely gilded. The front of the main body is engraved with an unusual shield shaped Armorial, surrounded by one of the most beautiful engraved cartouches we have ever seen, displaying exotic floral and foliate sprays. The quality of the engraving execution and design is not surprising when you consider the workshops which it came from. Henry Chawner was famous for the quality of his engraving. The Arms are those of Yorke, a Dover merchant family, an eldest son of whom was created Earl of Hardwicke in 1754.
