maker's mark "OL" height just shy of 3 1/2; top diameter 2 3/4 inches, monogrammed "AAH" (script) in oval cartouche with fancy scrolled floral engraved border, weight 2.23 oz. Troy, faintly gilt interior, a few dents in base as shown (please see photo number three) but very good overall condition.
What more may we say about this beaker? It won't break if you drop it and thus is well suited for bathroom or bar room. Swedish silver, even from the 19th century is rare in our part of the world, so we'll say that it's rare. It will hold a very generous belt of Scotch. And now we'll shut up.
