Renowned 18th-century English silversmith Hester Bateman created this vessel in the centuries-old form of the loving cup. From the straightforward proportions of the body to the graceful curvature of the handles, the cup is a wonderful example of Bateman's neoclassical aesthetic. Typically a form associated with trophies and presentation pieces, the loving cup's history dates to the 15th century, as seen in the Celtic and French wedding traditions where the bride and groom utilized the vessel to take their first drink as husband and wife, symbolizing unity.
