Rare Kentucky interest coin silver footed cup or mug with Chinese style decoration including pagodas, palm trees, and Asian figures, the foot ring side with incuse mark for George Washington Stewart, (working Lexington, 1843-1852). Central cartouche with monogram for Charles Hewitt Clifton (b. Louisville, KY 1845, d. Louisville 1887). 4 3/4"H. 8.13 oz troy. Note: this is one of a handful of known elaborate, high style scenic repousse pieces thought to have been made or at least retailed by Stewart, who was one of Lexington's most important silversmiths. The Speed Museum in Louisville owns a water pitcher of similar decoration with attributed date of 1848, and a similar cream pitcher was sold by Heritage Auctions in 2008.
PROVENANCE: Acquired from the estate of Barbara Merritt Woodard of Overland Park, Kansas.
CONDITION: Old solder repair to pedestal where it joins the foot. Otherwise excellent condition.
