Item: Child's Mug Description: Engraved
boar hunt scene Hallmark: London 1877 by George Adams
Dimensions: 100mm tall; 74mm diameter at top; 215g weight
Comments: A fantastic quality Victorian silver
mug with a superbly engraved scene around the exterior. The scene depicts
an ancient boar hunting scene with a man with spear and dog chasing a wild
boar. There is a dedication to celebrate a child's first birthday below a
cipher and the date 29th November 1879.
The mug is if the very highest quality with a good hefty
weight, gilt interior and three superbly made acanthus capped ball feet. The
decoration is extremely crisp throughout and the mug just oozes true quality.
