Antique Silver Carved Coconut Cup Georgian English European Standing Cup C. 1800
This is a standing Coconut Cup, circa 1800, hand carved from coconut with a sterling silver rim, and three silver feet. These types of cups were very popular in Europe for centuries, they were to have healing properties to them.
It is hand carved with three different scenes, of leaves and buds. The outside had a good patina, the inside has three lumps of resin, over each foot. I would not use it for drinking. It has no hallmarks, but test as silver. It stands 2 ¼ inches tall x 2 ¼ inches wide.
Estimated shipping to USA 10.00, Europe $ 40.00.
