Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
Pair of Loving Cups from Ireland are rare, it is thought that the two handles allowed the passing of the cup from one person to another as a token of friendship, or for drinking a celebratory toast. Work by Richard Tudor is especially scarce and does not appear on the market often. Tudor was a respected silversmith and was elected to the prestigious position of Master in 1771-72.
Height: 5.5 inches,13.75cm.
