Small handleless cup with hemispherical bowl on a raised pedestal base with vertical edge. Gilt washed interior. Edge of base struck with two marks, "TW" in raised serif letters in a rectangular shield and an eagle's head in profile, facing left, in an oval.
Attributed to Thomas Warner of (1780-1828) Baltimore; active, circa 1800-1820 (in partnership with his brother Andrew E. Warner, 1805-1812; served as first City Assayer for Baltimore, 1814 to 1823, and devised duty marks used). Prior to the creation of the Baltimore Assay Office, several Baltimore silversmiths, including Warner, used an eagle's head stamp as a pseudo-hallmark.
