Rare Irish George II Silver Mug or Tankard by John Moore, Dublin 1740

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This is a fine quality silver half pint mug by John Moore, fully hallmarked at Dublin, 1740.

The mug has a baluster shape with a hollow leaf capped scroll handle. The hand chasing to the body with foliate scrolls and floral decoration is well executed but would probably have been done later, as is often the case.

This mug is fully hall marked to the base and below the rim near the handle.

Irish silver from such an early date is rare.

Good weight: 337gm.
