A Hester Bateman silver tankard made in the Georgian periodSOLD

This is a rare example of Hester Bateman silver- a fine Georgian lidded tankard. Hester Bateman was dubbed "the Queen of English Silver", and a prolific female silversmith in the late 18th century. This example is of superb quality, and elegant design. This example was made by Hester Bateman in London 1783 (regardless of the date someone has erroneously engraved on it!).

Hester Bateman silver is highly prized by collectors who are fascinated by the novelty of a female silversmith. Much of her work is small and prettily designed. This is a rare example of a larger piece, but it still has the delicate proportions one associates with Hester Bateman silver.

Regardless of maker, this is in fact a very fine example of a Georgian silver tankard, and so it comes as no surprise that it was made by Hester Bateman- a silversmith with such an excellent reputation.
