Dram Cup - Engraved Armorial - London 1715 by William Fleming - 6.1cm high; 6cm diameter rim; 96g - YN/7753</p>

Sorry, this item is out of stock.

Ideal for that well deserved dram of whisky or other spirit, this little cup is a rare survivor from the early years of George I's reign.

 

Round in form with a loop handle, the interior is gilt and the exterior is superbly engraved with an original goat's head erased crest within a fabulous scroll cartouche. This gem of a piece is clearly marked for Britannia Standard silver and was made by William Fleming. It is in fine condition.
