Object Literature

Antique Silver Beakers date back to the early 1600s in Europe. They have remained popular up until the present day and are generally of a simple flared form. Sometimes double beakers are found which fit together in the shape of a barrel. The “Camp Canteen”, dating from the late 17th century onwards, is a travelling set consisting of a beaker fitted inside with cutlery, condiments and possibly a corkscrew.

Object Condition

The beaker is in very good condition. The gilding is bright with no wear. The decoration is crisp.
Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
