Description: A silver beaker of extremely high quality, with lobed and reeded body on gadrooned foot, and gilded interior. The beaker is of good weight and has a lovely feel. The beaker has a lovely crest, with the motto "Manners Makyth Man", and a French motto "Honi Soit Qui Mal Y Pense" (shame upon him who thinks evil of it). The crest, which is well engraved, is that of the Bishop of Winchester, William of Wykeham (Winchester impaling Wykeham). The arms are surrounded by the motto of the Order of the Garter (as the Bishop of Winchester is ex officio Prelate of the Order), his personal motto is beneath the arms. Wykeham founded New College, Oxford and Winchester College, Winchester in 1382, both of which use his personal arms and motto, not those impaled with his bishopric. The French motto is the motto of the "Order of the Knights of the Garter", which was formed in 1348 by King Edward III. Edward Ker Reid, who traded from Fleet Street in London, was the Grandson of Christian Ker Reid of Newcastle, who established Reid & Sons in newcastle in 1788. The hallmarks are very clear. The beaker holds 420 ml, or three quarters of a pint.
