Tankard

Creator:
Coney, John, 1656-1722
Published/Created:
Boston, Massachusetts
1685-1695
Materials:
silver
Notes:
Coney made this tankard for Mary Shrimpton, who married in 1692 the merchant Robert Gibbs (who had his portrait painted by the Freake limner in 1670). The Shrimpton coat of arms are engraved on the front and suggests the importance of family status along the female line. The spareness and simplicity of this tankard-- the simple base molding, shield terminal, restrained engraving-- contrast with the New York work of the same period.
