Cup: AAL.19-2009

Object information

Awaiting location update


Silversmith: Waite, Thomas (Possibly)




"The tapered beaker-shaped body engraved with Chinoiserie; the flat base engraved with initials L.E.B.
Only maker's mark shown - T.W. in a shaped shield with a cinquefoil below, unrecorded in Jackson. The shape of this vessel suggests that it was perhaps made in one of the centres in the East of England. Thomas Waite, for whom no mark is recorded, is listed as working in York in 1694/95."
