English Sterling Silver Tudor Cup (holms Cup) Antique Replica Birmingham 1922 For Sale
Presented, without reserve,is a high quality antique miniature sterling silver replica of "The Tudor Cup". AKA the Holms Cup.
This English Sterling Silver Cup was made by Blanckensee & Son, Birmingham in 1922. The hall marks are on the underside of the cup and are clear and easily legible to the naked eye. It is also marked -- Made in England -- within the hollow of the foot.
The cup stands approximately 2.25" tall and 2.63" in diameter. (5.7 cm & 6.7 cm, respectively). It is made of heavy gauge metal and weights 1.98 troy ounces. It appears to have originally beentreated with agold wash and much of this remains.
Thefooted cup has a font shaped bowl, chased with scale panels, below a Latin inscription in Lombardic letters, on a reeded and beaded pedestal foot. The Latin inscription reads DEVS IM DONA DVXS AME DENE SXCTVS and roughly translates to"on the beatific vision of God", which was used as a grace (Oman, English Engraved Silver, pg 31).
The original cupbecame famous when it was sold (as part of the Dunn-Gardner collection) at Christie's sale in 1901 for GBP 4100, the highest price ever paid for a piece of silver at that time. John Dunn-Gardner, of Soham Manor, had a legendary collection of silver, the sale covered 6 catalogue volumes. The original cup of 1521, with scallop shell makers mark, is also known as the Holms cup, named after a previous owner. The original cup is now part of the collection of the Royal Scottish Museum, who purchased it in 1958 for GBP 9500.
Excellent condition. No defects noted. Surface shows less than normal wear.No mono,repairs, orremovals.
The cup is typical of the pre-renaissance standing cups of the late Gothic period (Judith Banister, Victorian and Edwardian Reproductions, Antique Collector, November 1976), where a Tudor Cup replica is pictured. Banister notes the high quality of Victorian and Edwardian reproductions of famous pieces of silver, often made to commemorate Royal events such as coronations or Jubilee's.
