|Object Name||Cup, Coffee|
This cup was probably made for Samuel Hyde, a London merchant. Hyde was a director of the East India Company from 1734 to 1747, and owned a shipyard and dry dock in Blackwall in London in 1740.
Unfortunately, the quartered arms are not identified. They could be those of Piel or Wylie.
