Cup - 2-handled - London 1791 by John Edwards III - 28cm high; 23.5cm wide; 810g - RS/1825

John Edwards III, the maker of this fine cup, was a premier silversmith working in the latter part of the 18th century and belonging to a circle of silversmiths that included the young Paul Storr. This large cup is a great example of the quality of his work.

This impressive Georgian silver cup stands almost 12" high and has two stylish swept handles either side of the vase-shaped body. It stands on a pedestal foot, has a lovely gilt interior and is in fine condition. A large engraved crest of a standing stag is emblazoned to the front of the cup below a beautifully engraved band of floral scrolls, which is repeated around the foot.
