Scottish Horn and Sterling Silver Cup / Beaker - c. 1910
Sterling silver shields like the one on the body of this piece were often engraved with a crest or initials. Fortunately for you, this one never was. If you like, you can have a jeweler personalize it for you.
The maker is William Dunningham & Co. of Diamond Street in Aberdeen, a Scottish maker that specialized the manufacture of small horn pieces embellished with silver. Often this trimming was below the weight required for statutory hallmarking, although Dunningham did enter marks at the Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Chester offices. The hallmark on this piece shows "W D & Co", an "S" in a diamond indicating silver, and a third mark"925" that did not strike well or has worn. The marks on this cup are c. 1910.
CONDITION is good with no real problems to report. The silver is still firmly attached although a couple of the tiny silver rivets have gone missing sometime in the intervening 100+ years. Measures approximately 3 1/2" tall, a little irregular due to the natural material and hand manufacture.
A terrific gift for the man in your life, either Dad... or that special someone. Enjoy!
