Sterling Christening Mug, London, UK, 1853
This is a spectacular sterling christening mug with some interesting markings. Although they are a bit faint with wear, the mark's seem to indicate the following: maker's mark, John Walton, established in Newcastle in 1811 and active until 1856. Next is the standard mark, the lion passant, followed by a very faint mark that looks like a London mark. The next mark is an S in a style indicative of the year 1853. The final mark is a duty mark of Queen Victoria which dictates that the cup was made between 1837-1901. Most christening mugs were given as presents, many engraved with inscriptions and initials. This mug has beautiful engraved cartouches, but was not personalized. Measures: 4 1/2" to tip of handle x 2 5/8" diameter.
