    This punch bowl reflects a keen awareness of contemporary English silver, particularly in its engraved symmetrical cartouche of shells and foliate vines. It was made by Adrian Bancker and given to his brother, Christopher Bancker (1695–1763), by the heirs of John Roosevelt (1689–1750), to whom the Banckers were related by marriage.
