Pair of Victorian Double Silver Beakers

A superb pair of Victorian double silver beakers.

Each is chased with a set of three bands at each end, which are shaded in part. Each is engraved with lines to simulate a barrel.

They are gilded (gold-washed) inside.

This is a marvellous pair of silver beakers. They are designed so that they can be fitted together to resemble a barrel. Then, when pulled apart, they revert to two separate beakers. Double beakers of this form mostly date from the late eighteenth century, although one of our reference books shows a pair made in Nuremberg, Germany c1600. Our Victorian examples are a very good weight and in excellent condition.

This beautiful pair of Victorian double silver beakers was made in 1873 by William Wrangham Williams of Wrangham and Moulson, 39 Castle Street East, Oxford Street, London.
