Pair of coin silver goblets with beaded rims and foot rings, repousse strawberry decorated bowls with central cartouches having engraved monograms "EWY", probably for Ella Young McGavock (b. 1836-d. 1861) or her daughter Ella McGavock Wilson (born 1860, d. ? ). Unmarked. 6 1/4"H. 13.1 oz troy. Ella Young (middle name unknown) was born in Mississippi in 1836 to Alexander and Elizabeth Young. She married Edward Jacob McGavock of Nashville in 1857 and the couple lived at Pecan Point Plantation in Arkansas. Ella gave birth to three children, Louisa Grundy McGavock Tyner (1858), Frank McGavock (1859), and Ella Young McGavock Wilson (1860), before her untimely death in 1861 at the age of 25. She is buried in Lowndes County, Mississipi. Note: The style of these goblets dates them to around the time of Ella Young and E.J. McGavock's wedding (1857), however, the monogram may have been engraved later, around the time of the 1882 wedding of their daughter, Ella McGavock, to Sheldon Wilson. Provenance: Descended in the family of Edward Jacob McGavock to consignor. CONDITION: Goblets are in excellent condition.
