1880 STERLING SILVER AND HORN RHYTON – GEORGE ADAMS

Description:
Unusual drinking vessel made by the highly reputed London silversmith George Adams (1840 – 1883; Chawner & Co.) in 1880. The horn of a bull or ox was cleaned and fitted with different sterling silver parts in order to create the classic rhyton, a type of drinking vessel which would –theoretically- force its user to drink up its whole content since (if the base was detached) he would otherwise spill the remaining content. The escutcheon for the initials of the owner is still blank.

Maximum dimensions:
Horn and base together: 25.3cm (length) x 14.8cm (height) x 6.7cm (width)
Weight: 39gr (base) + 152gr (horn) = 191gr

Condition:
Good condition, with no damage other than the one shown in the picture (a crack under the rim). It has no restorations, and all other illustrated nicks are not damages, but natural features of the horn. Please, see the attached pictures for a better illustration of its condition.

Payment and shipment:
Possibility of paying in 30-60 days, according to the price finally reached. Do not hesitate to ask.
It is possible to pay in euros.
All items are shipped within 72 hours once the payment has been received.
