The handled cup measures 3" high, has a top diameter of 2 5/8", a maximum span of 3 3/4" to the end of the handle, and a 2 3/16" wide underside. It weighs 4.2 T. oz. There is a script "DMC" monogram on the sidewall.

Made by Gorham about 1900, it combines two styles.

First, it falls within the Art Nouveau mode popular during the period. This is expressed in the overall undulating form, and in the sinuous character of the detailing, for example the organic nature of the handle and the trailing stem and leaves that are applied to the body.

Second, it also incorporates four applied children's figures that are very much in the manner of Kate Greenaway, whose work harkens to the English Arts and Crafts Movement.

These figures include two boys and two girls, all wearing simple country clothing and bonnets.

It is in excellent condition, showing minimal signs of wear and having a fine finish. There are no dents, splits, or repairs. The interior retains traces of an original gold wash.

Marks on the underside include Gorham's lion, anchor, G, "Sterling," and the model number "A2678."
