Lieutenant-General Francis Lascelles: design for a silver cup, 1764 (2)

1764
Francis Lascelles (1744-99) was the son of the West Indian sugar merchant Edward Lascelles (1702-47), and therefore, the cousin of Edwin Lascelles (1712-95), the builder of Harewood House. Francis was an army officer, attaining the rank of Lieutenant-General in 1793. At some time he was also made a Groom of the Bedchamber to King George III, and died unmarried in 1799.

Nothing is known of the silver cup designed for Lt-General Lascelles in 1764. It appears to be a racing cup, but it is not known if it was executed. Moreover, this design is omitted from the relevant literature on the subject of silver.
