This elegant two-handled silver Loving cup by Hester Bateman is an exquisite example of Georgian English silver. Considered the grande dame of English silver, Bateman created pieces of sublime and understated beauty, and this cup, crafted in a goblet form with a simple banded decoration and crested swan-neck handles, is an exemplary piece of her exceptional handiwork. The most renowned female silversmith of the Georgian era, and indeed of all time, Bateman created pieces that spoke of refined domesticity. Her light and skillful touch, as well as her success as an 18th-century business woman, characterizes her work to this day.
