Footnotes

  • George III had married Princess Sophie Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz in 1761 and they ruled as monarchs of Great Britain and also as the Elector and Electress of Hanover. A number of special commemorative goblets were made at Lauenstein and Brunswick, engraved with individual and double ciphers. A Lauenstein goblet of the same shape as the present lot, engraved with double ciphers for George and Charlotte, was sold in these rooms 14 November 2007, lot 22. This had been given by George III to his daughter, Princess Mary and descended through the family of the Dukes of Cambridge. A Lauenstein goblet with a similar cipher of George III within a panel of trophies remained in the collections of the Royal House of Hanover and was included in Sotheby's sale at Schloss Marienburg, 5-15 October 2005, lot 1052. A related Brunswick goblet was sold as lot 1056
