An antique silver mounted coconut cup with scalloped decoration and standing on three decorative silver feet. Excellent condition. Height 9.5 cms. Diameter 8.7 cms. The silver is unmarked. Circa 1800. Origin unknown. Probably colonial.
This lovely antique coconut is in good condition with no damage or restoration. The nut is not cracked and does not leak. The silver has a few very minor dinks around the top of the mount.

Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
Coconuts were prized in early times for their healing powers and drinking vessels were often formed from them. The coconut cup is a variety of standing cup, made and used in Europe in the 15th and 16th Century, with a revival in Georgian England. Usually they have a pedestal foot or 3 ornamental feet and are mounted in silver or Old Sheffield plate.
