This distinguished horn drinking cup is quite a masculine artifact. The horn has gorgeous color to it, with striations ranging from pale yellowish tan and gray to a darker nut brown. It would make a great statement in any man's home, whether they chose to drink out of it or not. It could also be used to hold pens in an office or even shaving implements in a bathroom. Circa 1870
This cup measures 4 1/2" x 2 7/8". It is in very good condition, but has some slight chipping on the bottom rim. It does not leak, however. If you like this item, please take a look at the other horn drinking cups in my shop.
