About this artwork

Jeremiah Dummer was an apprentice to Boston silversmiths John Hull and Robert Sanderson, and in turn he taught the trade to Edward Winslow. This tankard is one of a small group made by Dummer that employs cut-card decoration. The designs on the rear of the tankard and the top of the lid were cut from a thin card of silver and applied to the surface of the tankard with liquid silver or solder.
