$265.00

An original julep cup, this piece stands 3 1/2" high, weighs 3.9 T. oz., and has a tapered body that goes from a 2 1/2" wide bottom to a 3" diameter top.

Coin silver, it is stamped on the underside "Duhme & Co.," for the prominent Cincinnati firm, and likely dates from the 1860s.

Plain walled, it has applied rims top and bottom, and is engraved "C.W.K." in a stylized lettering that seems to be an Old English variant.

It remains round, sits evenly, is without dents or bends, and has a pleasing, bright, finish. The bottom shows some pinprick nicking, and the walls, while smooth, exhibit slight surface unevenness characteristic of age, plus there is one visible deeper scratch.
