This broad-lipped tumbler, with its lovely engraved cartouche and scrolled acanthus-leaf ornament, was made for Samuel (1669–1698) and Adriantje Bayard (b. 1667) Verplanck, probably on the occasion of their marriage in 1691. The couple’s intertwined reverse cipher, “SAVP” is engraved on one side within the scroll and leaf cartouche, and their initials, “P” over “S V A”, are engraved in shaded roman lettering on the underside. Although unmarked, this vessel was likely made by a silversmith working in either New York or Albany.
Inscription: engraved on underside in shaded roman: P / S V A
engraved on body in interlaced script: S A V P (reverse cipher)
Samuel and Adriantje Verplanck, from 1691; descended in the Verplanck family, Fishkill-on-Hudson, New York; Mr. and Mrs. John Bayard Rodgers Verplanck, Fishkill-on-Hudson, New York, until 1953
