Object Literature

Tumbler cups were made from the mid 17th century. They are made from thick gauge sheet silver which was hammered up so that the sides become thinner towards the top and the rounded base would have the greater weight. When they are knocked over they will automatically right themselves.

Object Condition

The silver tumbler is in very good condition. Moderate signs of wear overall commensurate with age.
