YORK. An extremely rare & important Charles II Tumbler Cup made in York in 1680 by Richard Waynes.


The Tumbler Cup is of plain design and rises to a thick rim. This piece is in excellent condition and displays the original hammer marks from when it was made. Tumbler Cups were used to drink from when travelling in carriages, so that they would always tumble back to the flat point. This piece is very well marked on the base and is also engraved with the contemporary initials I.M. A near identical example is in the William Lee Collection, held in the York Minster Undercroft. Very few examples survive from York, especially of this early date. This is the first example of this very scarce silversmiths work, which we have offered over the years. The Cup has a very good colour and is of an extremely good gauge.

Height: 2 inches, 5cm.

Diameter: 3 inches, 7.5cm.

Weight: 5oz.
