Small Irish Silver Mether*
Little silver mether impressed with a Dublin hallmark for 1909 together with both the maker’s mark of the Belfast silversmith Sharman Dermott Neill and his name, shown as S.D. Neill.
Crafted in the traditional shape with a quatrefoil rim tapering slightly downwards to circular base and with four applied handles.
Simply decorated around the base with a series of three parallel etched lines and all the better for not being over elaborated.
An unusual and rare item, probably made at the time as a Christening mug.
The merest fraction over 6 cm high and shown in our last photo alongside the larger mether also offered (item 14420).
