Pair of early Victorian silver half-pint mugs with hand-chased mottled and textured bodies. Each has a floral cartouche and gilded interior. These are unusual both in their design and the fact that they are a pair.

A silver mug is a lidless drinking vessel with a handle and English silver mugs were made in graduated sizes; the most common being the quart, pint, half pint and gill. Gallon and half gallon mugs like this example appear from time to time.
