Coin Silver Presentation Cup
'W. H. Renaud Sep. 4th, 1869'
With Bust of Stonewall Jackson
New Orleans
Circa 1869, entire view 1

This silver presentation cup, with applied handle, features a bas relief profile of General Stonewall Jackson on front and is engraved on rim "W. H. Renaud Sep. 4th, 1869." The cup is marked on bottom "E. A. TYLER / NEW ORLEANS," dimples, overall very good. William H. Renaud was a member of the Company C [Ellison's] Confederate Guards Regiment who also served in Fender's Battery during the Civil War. In 1861 he is listed in the NOLA City Directory as an accountant. He eventually became a successful businessman.
E. A. Tyler was a jeweler and watchmaker on Canal Street who also advertised "silver and plated ware" but apparently was a retailer and not a silversmith.
(H: 4".)

A blown glass bottle with kicked-up base and rough pontil; enameled decoration featuring a depiction of George Washington with the Marquis de Lafayette and the following printed on the surface of the bottle: Washington***Lafayette / Anisette Surfine, plus indecipherable lettering below portrait. Found under the floorboards of a circa 1790s tavern, located in Washington County of New York. Unfortunately, no additional information has been discovered regarding this particular bottle; possibly a commemorative item created in honor of Lafayette's visit to the United States, which took place circa 1824-1825. Some of the printed design and lettering has worn off of the bottle at base of cartouche from handling with all else secure and fine. (Dimensions: 11.75" H.)

Admiral Nelson Trafalgar Victory
Commemorative Goblet
Circa 1805 - SOLD


Admiral Nelson Trafalgar Victory
Commemorative Goblet
Circa 1805, entire view

Blown goblet with attached foot and stem; cut and engraved decoration with gilt highlighting of a ship and the words "Nelson's Victory"; possibly decorated to commemorate Admiral Nelson's victory at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805; trace of gilded monogram, possibly "JEC." The goblet is in excellent condition.
With the defeat of his fleet at Trafalgar in 1805, Napoleon's hope to break the British blockade and to invade England was dashed. For England the victory came dearly, for it cost the life of the nation's greatest captain, Horatio Viscount Nelson. English merchants and manufacturer's immediately upon learning of the great victory, and the loss of the popular navel commander, began producing a variety of commemorative items. This flint goblet is an example of the type of souvenir that was marketed to a grieving, adoring public. It is somewhat unusual in that it puns the name of Nelson's flagship HMS Victory and the positive result of the Battle of Trafalgar for England. Approximately 8" high; diameter: 5.5".

Commemorative Tray
Featuring relief medallion portraits of Washington, Webster, and Clay; the Declaration of Independence with Trumbull's painting of the signing in the center; 
Silver Plate, entire view

Oval silver plated tray features relief medallion portraits of George Washington, Daniel Webster, and Henry Clay as well as a copy of the Declaration of Independence with the Trumbull painting of the signing of the Declaration in the center. The medallions are by, or based upon, commemorative medals by Charles Cushing Wright often thought of as the finest die sinker of the early 19th century. Washington is from a circa 1851 medal honoring the 75th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, while Clay and Webster are circa 1852, the year both men died. The central motif is a copy of the Declaration of Independence engraved by S. H. Black circa 1859 and in the center is a representation of the Trumbull painting of the signing that appeared on the reverse of Wright's 1851 medal. On either side of the Washington portrait are eagles, one with a sword in its beak and the other with the scales of justice. Both have fasces at their feet. Beneath the Constitution is a panoply of arms and flags as well as the reverse of the Clay medal. The Webster and Washington images are signed "C. C. Wright D & F." The Declaration is signed "Printed according to Acts of Congress in the year 1859 by S. H. Black in the Clerk's office of the District Court of the United States for the Southern District of New York."

It appears that the tray originally had an integral hanger on the reverse of the rim, but that the sheer weight of the tray caused a separation of the body and the rim. There is an old, very possibly contemporary, repair where the separation occurred. Overall the tray is in very good condition with some areas of copper showing through probably due to over polishing and a slight crease near the Webster image. (Approximately 28" x 23".)
