Webster Co, STERLING SILVER, Baby Cup, No Monogram, 1930s, Gold Wash Interior
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST!
One of my consignors takes in a lot of silver flatware and hollow ware as part trade for sale of their jewelry. Some of the pieces are wonderful and I want to save as many as I can from being scrapped so I will be offering as many silver items I can.
Up for offer now…
AGE: Best guess is 1930s or so as the cup has the old Webster hallmark
ITEM: A baby cup - childs cup of silver featuring a large mug-type handle and a gold washed (vermeil) interior. No monogram.
CONDITION: Very nice but it does need a polish - I just did enough of one for the photos. Not perfectly round at the top - one area has the kind of small flatness that comes with squishing something into a box that doesn't quite fit (I don't think it even shows in the photos, its that small). No dents or dings.
METAL CONTENT: Sterling Silver
HALLMARKS: STERLING (Old Webster hallmark)
SIZE: The round alone measures about 2-3/4" across; from handle to other end is 3-9/16". Height is 2-9/16".
WEIGHT: 64.4 grams - a respectable weight for a baby cup!
FINAL COMMENTS: When I can, I will beat anyone’s price on RL. I want to turn over the silver inventory quickly so I can keep loading in more. St. Louis was a boom city in the 1800s and the silver inventory here is legendary. For those who know, the 1904 World’s Fair held one of the largest competitions in silver design – all the big maker names of the day competed and a lot of the winning pieces stayed in St. Louis after the Fair ended. So keep watching my listings, I never know what I am going to have week to week – all I know is it will be varied, fabulous and deserving of a good home.
