This is a fabulous silver pint mug made by the important Art Deco period silversmith, HG Murphy. This tankard has a fabulous feeling of quality and good weight in the hand and bears an engraved crest featuring a lion and the motto "Deus Vitae Textor" (translates to "life for weaver"). This silver beer mug is clearly hallmarked to the underside and includes a good example of Murphy's Falcon Studio workshop.
An excellent piece in superb condition!
