This exceptionally rare piece is a design which was peculiar to Chester. The plain design has a distinctive bellied central section and everted base and rim. The Mug has a plain scroll handle and is very well marked on the base. The weight and gauge is exceptional and the original interior hammer marks can also be seen. These Mugs are exceptionally rare, however the example we offer is much larger than their usual size. A very fine example is contained within the Grosvenor Museum in Chester. Silver from Chester was not made in large quantities and rarely appears on the market.
