An antique silver model of a marriage cup having a lady in a crinoline dress with an attractive decorative skirt with wriggle work around the bottom. Tiny size. Good weight. Weight 39 grams, 1.2 troy ounce. Height 8.5 cms. Stamped on the bottom of the skirt with German silver marks. Circa 1900.
This pretty little miniature cup is in excellent condition with no damage or restoration. There is a slight unevenness in the top which is original and we think this adds to the charm

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.
Wager cups. The idea is to drink the contents of the large cup (the lady’s skirt) without spilling the drink inside the small cup. These highly collectible silver double drinking vessels are also known as marriage cups. The bride would drink from the small cup, the groom from the large cup.
