Tumbler cup: AAL.84B-2009

Object information

Awaiting location update


Silversmith: Walker, Mathew




Pair with AAL.84A-2009. The straight-sided and nearly flat base is plain except for engraved contemporary armorials; parcel gilt.
The rim base was added later and bears the London mark for 1852. The base was removed after purchase by P. C. G. and thereby restored to original condition, a fine Irish tumbler cup.
