This listing is for a pair of fine quality British sterling silver wine or water goblets that were made in London in 1795 by Robert Gaze (registered in London in January 1795). They are 6 1/2″ tall, 3 1/2″ in diameter and total weight is 17.15 troy ounces. One is 8.69 ozt while the other is 8.46 ozt. The crest “In Ardua Vitus” means Virtue against Difficulties. It is unknown who the crest belongs to. Great condition for age (over 200 years old). They sit nice and flat on a hard surface (no wobbles). These were hand-wrought so there are some minor tool marks and they are not perfectly round on the top rims (but pretty close). There are some minor blemishes, rippling and tiny dings. One of the goblets has an area of damage/repair on the foot and this one also has about a 1/2 crease on the lower part of the body. The other one has a 1/4 crease/ding on the stem. None of these issues, besides the area of damage/repair on the foot, are noticeable and I could not get good pictures of them. Please see all pictures for details.
