Silver Tankard by Johnson, Walker & Tolhurst
Small hammered silver tankard made by Johnson, Walker & Tolhurst and hallmarked in London for the year 1900.
Rising off a tapered foot, the bulbous lower area is decorated in strong relief with acanthus leaves before flaring outwards as it rises towards the rim which shows a leafy design all round, sandwiched between two rows of fine dots.
The acanthus leaf theme is repeated on the elegantly curved handle to complete a very pleasing overall look.
Impressed with the makers‘s mark of Johnson, Walker & Tolhurst of Aldersgate Street, London, EC, the WWBT being for Walter Walker and Brownfield Tolhurst.
The capacity is half a pint or a little under 300 ml and the height is just a fraction over 11.5 cm.
The tankard is in excellent condition.
