Quaiche Antique English Sterling Silver Naval Interest Hms Royal Arthur:
An Edwardian silver quaiche in very good condition and clearly hallmarked for London 1904. It is made of a good gauge of silver and retains its original shape. The attractively pierced handle is firmly fixed. The hallmarks for London 1904 are clearly struck but the makers mark is partially rubbed. It stands on a slightly raised base and is of baluster form.

In 1904 it was decommissioned and this quaiche was clearly a gift from the Captain and crew to their Chief Petty Officer. P J Hale. Weight 1.5 ozs (43gms)
