Nathan & Hayes Mycenaean Wine Cup
Shallow silver wine cup made by the Arts & Crafts silversmiths George Nathan and Ridley Hayes who had workshops in both Birmingham and Hatton Garden, London between 1895 and 1915.
The design is based on an original found in the archaeological excavation of Mycenae in 1876.
Raised off a small round foot, the circular bowl of the cup is decorated all round with hand chased profile portraits of rather important looking Mycenaean men, bordered above and below by a chased foliate frieze.
The applied scroll handle is embellished with a tapering naturalistic leafy design.
Diameter is a touch over 11.5 cm and the height to the top of the handle is 6.5 cm.
With a Chester hallmark for the year 1905.
