I’m at a disadvantage here because I’m looking at your pictures on a mobile device, and they’re not in focus to begin with. On the base of the beaker you have a charge mark of an A in a circle, a date letter of a crowned P, and a maker’s mark. The number between the legs of the A will give you the year, as will the 2 digits under the crown on top of the P. On the exterior there is a discharge mark of a leaf in a circular reserve. These marks are all in concordance.
However, in my opinion the timbale has been repaired and modified, and the gadrooned foot is not original to the object. The foot is out of proportion to the body (too small in circumference). You can see that the maker’s mark has been cut off on the right as a consequence of the repair/replacement. You might also check if the base with the marks might have been dropped in from another timbale of later manufacture. Timbales often get quite beat up, and extensive repairs are common.
The maker’s mark is that of Pierre-Antoine Famechon who registered on 20 July 1785: a crowned fleur-de-lys, PAF, 2 grains, and a Holy Spirit as symbol. He worked in Paris on rue de la Calandre (nos. 13 and 46). In 1792 he was 32 years old, and listed in the Almanach Royal as a silversmith who was registered as a voter in the Notre-Dame district. No end date is given.
See Nocq, v. 2, p. 160-61.
At the time of the Revolution Pierre-Antoine Famechon was still a relatively young man, but is not listed in Arminjon for the period 1798-1838. However, there are 2 silversmiths by that surname who may be relatives:
- Jean-Baptiste Famechon, hollowware maker at 30 quai des Orfèvres, registered 11 March 1796 ( 21 ventôse An V) symbol a half Corinthian column with a sphere on top;
- Jean-Pierre Famechon, hollowware maker at 54 quai des Orfèvres, registered 31 July 1820, same symbol as above.
See Arminjon, v. I, no. 01600, p. 179, and no. 02073, p. 219.
