An important, possibly unique, George III Tankard and Cover made in London in 1801 by the Royal makers John Wakelin & Robert Garrard I.


This very unusual piece is of a design which is previously unknown and may have been a special commission. As you will see from the images, the Tankard has a slightly baluster shape and is decorated with an upper and lower raised herring bone band, enclosing a raised band of cast and applied hops. This example has a plain harp shaped handle, flat cover, and chair back thumb piece. The interior is unusually gilded, which may denote that it was a commission from an important individual. The quality of this piece is exceptional, it is in excellent condition and is fully marked on the side of the main body and the underside of the cover. Wakelin & Garrard had workshops in Panton Street when this piece was made.

Height: 7.4 inches, 18.5cm.
