An antique sterling silver campaign folding cup in a fitted leather case. This ingenious flat fold beaker is made in 3 shaped pieces which concertina up into a watertight cup*. Finely engraved with arched panels containing beautiful bouquets of flowers and to the front there is a decorative intertwined monogram. Gilded interior. Contains 150 ml (first joint - 50 ml). Weight 124 grams, 3.9 troy ounces. Height 3.5 cms (flat), 8.5 cms (total). Diameter 5.5 cms (top), 5 cms (bottom). All pieces marked. Sheffield 1875. Maker Martin Hall & Co, Sheffield.
This useful folding beaker is in excellent condition with no damage or restoration. The three sections slot together snugly. The engraving is crisp. Each piece has matching silver marks which are crisp and easy to read.

*This has been tested with water. Firstly, it's important to assemble the three pieces carefully, then the beaker will hardly leak. There no loss if you fill the beaker lower than the first joint, but above that point there is minimum loss.

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.
There are another two campaign beakers available, #7035 and #7036 with almost identical engraving. However they have different sizes, dates and makers. Possibly these beakers have come from a large set which has been added to over a large period of time.
