1820's M.A. Lunn Family inscribed Tankard, Lincolnshire, England
Inscription on bottom: "M.A. Lunn, Lincoln" is beautifully hand engraved or inscribed in old script. This is a 1/2 pint silverplate over copper mug from the early 19th century. The trademark, makers mark, or hallmark is an etched cross insignia inside a rounded rectangle. It has been next to handle on body, see photo. We do not know the maker from this hallmark, do you?
This is a beautiful old British Lunn family original vintage piece. It was found in Tavistock, Devon, England. A handmade piece, it was most likely made by a Sheffield, England silversmith. It once had more silver plating over the cooper, but it has worn away with time, see photos. We did find evidence of Mary Anne Lunn in Lincoln census records.
The Lunn family had an extensive genealogy presence in the Lincolnshire area, and much can be found in UK web genealogy searches. The antique dealer we purchased this from dated it in the 1820-1840's range. A beautiful one of a kind Lunn surname piece.
