A very fine George III Drinking Goblet made in London in 1772 by Richard Morson & Benjamin Stephenson.

The Goblet stands on a circular spreading base which is decorated with bold beading, as is the plain pedestal foot. The foot rises to a vase shaped bowl engraved with the contemporary script initials JC, all surrounded by a circular trailing floral and foliate cartouche. The side of the bowl displays a full set of crisp hallmarks, and the interior its original gilding. This piece is in excellent original condition. Morson & Stephenson are scarce silversmiths, known for their quality of production and unusual designs. They had workshops at 98, Fleet Street, London, when this piece was made.

Height: 7 inches, 17.5cm.
Diameter at the rim: 3.25 inches, 8.13cm.
Weight: 9oz.
