Mug or Cup

1845-1851

Repousse

Monogram: "Heinrick"

Dimensions: Height 3 3/4"

Condition: Very Good to Excellent

Troy 4.16


Short Provenance: Estate of Michael M. Finefrock, Charleston, South Carolina. Mr. Finefrock died holding one of the largest silver collections in the United States.


William Phyfe was a partner from 1844 to 1849 and from 1852 to 1855 with Edgar Eoff in New York City NY as EOFF & PHYFE, with shop at 5 Dey Street. Retailed by Ball, Tompkins & Black. Tompkins left “Ball, Tompkins & Black” in 1851


Underneath the cup is marked with Eoff & Phyfe’s maker’s mark along with the retailer’s mark, ‘Ball, Tompkins & Black’ - who would become Ball, Black & Co (the leading jewelers in New York City in the 1850’s) and then Black, Starr & Frost.


This is a very collectible piece because of its condition,repousse design, the reputation of the silversmiths Eoff & Phyfe, andthe Pre-Civil War age.


"Since the Victorian era, one of the most popular Christening gifts for a baby boy has been a silver cup or silver tankard - a beautiful present that is often passed down from generation to generation. But why should such a seemingly utilitarian object become associated with such an important rite of passage? Although the Christening cup became increasingly popular in Victorian times, the myths and tradition surrounding cups themselves have roots going back many thousands of years. Part of the cup's legacy may come from the ritual of sharing a drink from a single cup, as in the Loving Cups and Grace Cups drunk at formal banquets and dinners. Trust and communal bonds are reaffirmed when drinking from the same cup and this is mirrored in the chalice and the Communion service in the Christian Church. The Christening cup obviously has precedents from our distant past, which have been adopted over time and assumed a greater religious significance. From the concept of plenty - "My Cup Runneth Over" - in Psalm 23, to the cup of judgement and obligation in Christ's words in Gethsemane - "Let this cup pass from me" - the cup itself has a resonance throughout Christian tradition."
