An unusual George III 'Can' shaped Drinking Mug made in London in 1798 by Charles Chesterman.


The Mug is modelled in the unusual Can form with slightly tapering sides and a reeded rim and base. The applied scroll handle is also reeded and the interior displays original gilding. The front is crisply engraved with a bright cut navette shaped cartouche containing the contemporary script initials EJ. The base is beautifully engraved with The Gift of Mrs Collins, 1798, the same date as the Mug. The small size suggests that this was for a child or Lady.
