Object Literature

Tumbler Cups were made from the mid-17th century onwards. 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. A very useful drinking cup to use onboard ship.

Object Condition

Both tumbler cups are in very good condition with no damage. They are stamped underneath with a full set of matching English silver hallmarks. The date letters are not fully stamped but can be made out clearly.
