Catalogue Note

While ceramic forms traditionally followed silver, here the influence is reversed. Garrard’s have copied an English tyg, a multi-handled pottery drinking vessel found from the 15th to 17th centuries, made in Wrotham, Kent, and Staffordshire. An example with four handles and fleur-de-lys decoration probably by George Richardson, Wrotham, dated 1649, was sold Sotheby’s New York, January 20, 2006, lot 10 from the Harriet Carlton Goldweitz Collection.
