Measuring 3" tall to the rim and 3" across on the top, 2" on the base, having a maximum span of 4" to the tip of the handle, and weighing a substantial 4.7 T. oz., this solid silver mug is marked on the bottom with Durgin's "D in a shield" emblem used on holloware, "Sterling," model number "35," and the name of the retailer, Philadelphia's carriage trade "Bailey, Banks & Biddle Co."

Executed in an Arts & Crafts manner, it has clean lines and form.

The body is plain, with a slightly bowed and tapered side wall. This is inscribed below the rim with a double line border accompanied by swags and a repeating blossom and leaf motif.

The flat top handle is straightforward, three dimensional, and offers a solid grip for the thumb and forefingers.

There is a line script "PKS Jr." monogram engraved on the body opposite the handle, along with the date "Feb. 24th 1917" on the underside.

In excellent condition, this apparently was little used. It is free of dents, bends, or scuffs, and shows a brilliant, hand polished only, finish.
