Covered Caudle Cup
Maker: John Coney (American, 1655–1722)
This cup was presumably purchased by Isaac Addington from a legacy of twenty pounds left to him in 1679 by his uncle, Governor John Leverett. It is the earliest American covered cup known and the only known example made in New England, although numerous uncovered caudle cups survive (including an example by Jeremiah Dummer; see 1930.1215). The cup was made while John Coney was still young and reveals his assurance in working silver.
