A good George III silver Wine Goblet.
A George III bright-cut and panelled Goblet, London 1794, by William Fountain. The engraving on the panels has a central cartouche and, on each alternate panel, the rosette has script owner’s initals ‘JH’ beneath a baron’s coronet.
William Fountain, an apprentice of Daniel Smith, had been in partnership with Daniel Pontifex but entered a mark on his own on the 1st September 1794 – this goblet was therefore made between that date and May of the following year.
Good. Some wear to the interior gilding on the lower part of the bowl.
