First referred to in England during the 1640’s, the silver flagon was designed as a large serving vessel, typically used for wine or ale at the table, and usually holding around 2 pints, or 1.1 litres. The earliest form was that of an enlarged tankard, with a flat or domed lid and a thumb piece, with later versions having a pouring spout added. In Ecclesiastical silver the term is often given to the vessel used to refill the communion wine during Holy communion.
Hallmarked In 1730
Hallmarked in London in 1730 by Thomas Tearle, this handsome, George II, antique silver flagon, stands on a flared base, and features a wonderfully engraved coat of arms. The flagon measures 13.75 inches (35cm) tall, by 9 inches (23cm) from handle to side.
