Description

Pair with AAL.84B-2009. The straight-sided and nearly flat base is plain except for engraved contemporary armorials; parcel gilt.
The rim base was added later and bears the London mark for 1852. The base were removed after purchase by P.C.G. and thereby restored to original condition, a fine Irish tumbler cup.
