Up for sale is a George II period, sterling silver tankard, hallmarked, London 1747. It's weight is 298g (9.58 troy ounces) as shown in the last photo.The tankard is plain with no decoration on it. It has some very small dings on the outside but nothing that causes any significant deformity to its shape at all. The inside does not have a rough feel to it but has a more'hammered' feel to it. The tankard stands at around 11.5cm (4.5 inches) and the base is approxiately 9cm (3.5 inches) in diameter. Although the tankard sits steady on a flat surface, it can be pulled back a little as the base, near the handle, is slightly bent upwards.
There also appears to be a small solder mark/repair on the underside of the top part of the handle where it meets the main body of the tankard. The last two photos shows this, I thought this might be flux from soldering but it may just be filling.The assay office is London as seen in the second to last photo, with date letter'm' indicating the year 1747. The makers mark is partialy visible but belongs to Richard Gurney and Thomas Cook.
The R G runs from left to right and usually the T C runs from top to bottom but only the T is visible. Please search for the Gurney and Cook makers mark to compare it to the one on the tankard to convince yourself that they are indeed the makers of this tankard.
