Early 1900s Hammered 800 Silver Beaker Wine Cup Murbach No Foot

I'm not sure of the origin of this beaker or wine cup or kiddush ( and in America, mint julep cup) but there is no mistaking the artistry involved in hand hammering this elegant, undecorated form. Wrought from thick silver, the cup has simple straight lines except for a slight flare at the rim. The bottom is marked 800 (for the silver purity) and MURBACH. I haven't found a maker by this name. There is a town of this name in France near the German border but the French, unlike the Germans, did not work in 800 silver.

It stands 3 3/8" (86 mm) high and is 2.5" (57 mm) diameter at the mouth. Weight is 97.6 grams. Condition is quite good; there are some slight dents which aren't obvious especially due to the hammered surface and one small dent on one side of the foot. What may appear to be a noticeable dent in the pictures is an illusion caused by light reflection.

I am listing a very similar beaker- same marks but with an applied foot, slightly lighter in weight and 1/8" higher. If bought together, shipping will be the same as for just one.
