A fine French silver timbale , cup or beaker. The timbale is worked in the Louis XVI style with a large cast and applied oval cartouche on the front. The cartouche is in the form of a shield with a winged bird at the top. The decoration of the shield continues with the torch and arrow motifs, ribbons, and Laurel leaves. It is finished off with cross ribbons over bands. Overall a very pleasing example of French timables. The cups does have a monogram that appears to be a “T”.
Perfect for wine and Mint Juleps the silver cups are always an appreciated gift for wedding, birthdays, and anniversaries.

Condition Report; Very good, clean interior, a few micro scratches from normal use in accordance with age and use. Three small shocks at the base of the cup and these are mainly seen when you turn the cup over and look at the bottom and several very small creases. Price does reflect the small issues with this lovely cup.
