4-cup silver carrier
VINTAGE ITEM: A silver plated server with 4 cups.
This has a looped handle on a tapering shaft to a fretted pedestal on to the carrying plate. It comes with 4 chalice cups, to fit on their locating posts on the plate.
There are a number of possibilities for its original use. It might, for example, have been used to carry fortified drinks to the Hunt masters setting out on horseback in their pink coats, or for use on a ship where spillage was a possibility…
We think this 4-cup silver carrier would be brilliant for boiled eggs.
There is fine detailing to the plate and cups, of both beaded and reeded bands.
“C BROS” & marks to base
