This Victorian silver pint mug, made in 1897, is beautifully hand-engraved with turnips sitting among sprigs of hops and other plants. The engraving on this charming piece is exceptionally crisp and is set off beautifully against the slightly frosted finish of the mug.

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.
