- Raised cann or mug with high incurved neck and flared rim, straight tapered sides rounded at bottom, and a cast, incurved circular foot. Hollow, double C-scroll handle has a plain sprig or upturned tab on top, pendant beads soldered to body below upper terminal, and a lower scroll terminal with pointed tailpiece and oval attachment. Bottom underside is engraved in shaded serif letters "C / T*A" and "A*B". Partial stamp struck once to left of handle below rim on exterior appears to be the raised serif letters "S[S]" in a surround.
- Attributed to Simeon Soumaine of New York, NY (born in London and baptized at the Huguenot Church, 1685; died, 1750). Piece has been dated to c. 1706 and first half of the 18th century; the double C-scroll handle suggests a date towards the end of that range, 1740-1750.
