PLEASE CHECK ALL MEASUREMENTS IMAGES AND INFORMATION AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE. An antique Victorian large and very heavy sterling silver cup by George Nathan & Ridley Hayes which is decorated in relief. Two gold examples of this were found in a Tholos burial at Vapheio near Sparta , southern Greece in 1888 by Christos Tsountas. They are a type of Mycenaean drinking vessel which have flaring sides a single handle and a flat base.
I have to say this piece is beautifully crafted with bulls , man and foliate design in relief and is a very heavy and substantial piece at nearly 300 grams of sterling silver. Great to find a Victorian piece as most where after 1900's and this is exceptional quality and of course the very collectable Chester hallmark. Hallmarks/marks - Lion Passant-Chester-Q and makers mark G. Measurements - 9.3cm across the top-7.6cm across the bottom.
Weight - 297.7 grams. Condition - very very good used beautiful antique condition-no dents or splits-light age related surface wear-nothing to worry about. Additional notes - stock no 6398.
