Pair of Silver Beakers  1966

A matching pair, both hallmarked underneath with matching marks and also the weight of each individual beaker.These hand made beakers display the original hammer marks from where they were raised from sheet silver.

 They are engraved with images of the Greek mythological figures Artemis & Actaeon .

Actaeon was a young prince and a very skilful hunter who was taught the skill of hunting from the gentle centaur Chiron.

One day, while Actaeon was on his way to hunt, he stumbled upon the divine virgin Artemis, bathing naked in the woods of Orchomenos, surrounded by her nymphs. Amazed by her beautiful body and divine grace, he couldn't help staring. When Artemis became aware of this intrusion, she got furious and punished Actaeon by transforming him into a stag.

Actaeon became fearful and fled away, but his own hunting dogs, 50 in number, jumped on him and tore him to pieces and devoured him, thinking that he was a real stag.
