A SMALL COLLECTION OF ANTIQUE SILVER AND OBJECTS OF VERTU

silver tumbler - Italy


Italian antique 
silver tumbler this is a silver tumbler made in Italy at the beginning of 20th century.
It has 800 mark (purity degree 800/1000 for Italian silver) and an engraved monogram nb.
The tumbler is 2 in. tall (cm. 5) and was bought from an Italian dealer at an Antique Fair.
The plain unusual shape of this 20th century tumbler seems to be inspired by cups of XVIII century of similar shape. The last photo below belongs to a cup made in London in 1790 by silversmith Peter Podio.

This item is not for sale, but most of my pieces were bought through the Internet. On the right bar of this page there are some links to silver and antique dealers websites
