Small Irish Silver Mether*

Item Description

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).

Ref: 14462
