1,100.00

A superior sterling silver George III Sterling silver goblet or presentation cup by Charles Hougham of London, marked for 1789. This goblet seems to have been presented by John Christian Hartwig Garbers, a Liverpool merchant who owned the vessel Speights Town that was lost at sea a few years later in 1795. The cup bears the inscription John C H Garbers Liverpool around the base and the initials 'BHL' on the cup. Hand chasing and engraving richly adorns the cup in a band at the base and at the rim. The engraving work is incredibly fine, detailed, and beautiful. Hallmarks are deep, clear, and show remarkably little wear. The hallmarks are CH (Charles Hougham), lion passant (sterling), crowned leopard (London pre-1822), O (1789), and George III duty mark. Overall condition is near mint with no significant dents, scratches or other signs of use. Cup stands straight. Very little patina inside or out. Light surface scratches as you might expect from a more than 225 year old wine cup.

Weight is 182.5 grams.

Dimensions 6.2" (160mm) tall x 3.3" wide at the rm (83.5mm). Base is 3.0" (78mm).
