Tartan Ware Beaker/Shot Glass Holder and Glass
A wonderful and handy tartan beaker (shot glass) holder with a transfer scene of High St. Dunfermline Scotland. Inside this beaker-holder is a glass beaker (shot glass) made just for this tartan holder. The small glass looks as if it has a crack but that is just a scratch. Measurements: Glass Beaker 2 1/4 inches high and 1 3/8 inches in diameter at the widest point. The tartan holder is 2 3/4 inches high and at the widest point is 2 inches in diameter. The glass beaker fits in safely and is also well protector.
The tartan beaker holder looks as if, over the years, has had additional layers of lacquer applied to keep the tartan paper from being worn away. I have not discovered the name of the Clan represented by this plaid.
