Nashville, Tennessee retailed coin silver mug or cup with repousse floral design, monogrammed "Lula" in cartouche, with beaded lip and slightly raised beaded footring, acanthus decorated C-shaped handle. Incuse mark "T. Gowdy" (Thomas Gowdey, b. 1795, working Nashville, 1825-d. 1863). Note: the misspelling on Gowdy's name in this mark, and on other Gowdey pieces, suggests they were made out of state and retailed in Nashville. 4"H, 3.885 oz troy. Circa 1850. Provenance: the collection of John Montague, Memphis, Tenn. CONDITION: Handle has been re-soldered and cup repaired (patched) at the joint; several small scattered dents to body and footring.
