Description

Rare Antique Silver Tumbler Cup, c.1600

An extremely rare silver gilt Bratina/tumbler cup, Nuremberg c.1600, the maker Lorenz Ott; the inscription around the top in gothic script loosely translates as “Drink me up ,and put me on the ground, I will stand up, so that you can refill me ,Year 1602”.

These type of cups originated in Russia and Scandinavian; this piece being from Southern Germany, we think it most likely that it was commissioned as a gift to a friend in the North; the cup measures 6 cm in height and 6.34 cm in diameter across the top; weight is 2 ½ ozs approx.

Height: 6.00cm (2.36 inches)
