Antique Late 18th Century French Silver Beaker By Louis Tassin For Sale
ANTIQUE LATE 18TH CENTURY FRENCH SILVER BEAKER by LOUIS TASSIN
Up for sale is a very nice antique French solid silver beaker. It was made by the Paris silversmith Louis Tassin around the end of the 18th or very beginning of the 19th century. It is engraved with alternating panels of flower swags and shell type panels under a scrolling flower border. It is fully hallmarked with Louis Tassin’s MAKER’S MARK (L.T with crown & pellet), Paris FIRST STANDARD (cockerel 1) in the base and GUARANTEE MARK (medium size number 8 visible) on the side. These marks were in use between 1798 and 1809. There is also a Royal ordinance CENSUS mark (hound’s head) to the foot rim. The silver has a very nice colour and patination. It is in very good condition with just a tiny crack to the rim and the odd very minor ding. It weighs 76 grams and measures 9.3 cm (3 21/32 inches) tall by approximately 7 cm (2 13/16 inches) in diameter.
