Sterling Silver Christening Mug by John Hunt & Robert Roskell Antique Victorian. This fine antique sterling silver christening mug has a cylindrical tapering form onto a plain spreading collet style foot. The body of this Victorian mug is ornamented with a fine and impressive chased decorated grape and vine decoration on a matt background. The decoration to the body incorporates a vacant shield shaped cartouche. The upper rim and foot of the mug are encircled with bands of tooled decoration.

The silver mug is fitted with an impressive opposing C shaped handle realistically modelled in the form of a grape vine. This fine example of antique silverware retains the original gilt interior. This impressive Victorian mug, crafted by the renowned London silversmiths John Hunt & Robert Roskell, bears the retailers mark Hunt & Roskell, Late Storr & Mortimer to the underside.

This antique mug is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional presentation condition. The chased decoration is all very sharp. Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the rim are all very clear. Reflections in photography may detract from the true representation of this piece of Victorian silverware.
