Austria Hungarian Solid Silver Chased Cup with Figural Stork & Goose Hallmarked Pressburg c1784. Presented is a beautiful hand hammered and chased cup hallmarked for silver made in the Austro-Hungarian province of Pressburg of 13 loth silver c1784. 13 loth is equivalent to 812 ½ fine silver, so there is slightly less silver in this alloy. This beautiful cup has a great wrap around pictorial of a scenic view in one and figural stork and a goose in the other leading me to believe this may have been made as a child's cup for fabled stories.
While it does appear to have a visible repair that was made in the past at the bottom and a rough edge on the rim. Some minor dings or visible uneven surface in the high finish; evidence of a hand hammered surface. And only some fine scratches from gentle use and care. It is and excellent piece for the silver collector. I have acquired an interesting assortment of other items so please look at my other auctions.Measure: 3 ¼" inches tall, 3" inches across bottom, 2½ inches across bottom.
