Presented is a fine old American coin silver cup. This piece dates to circa 1851. The cup is beautifully hand chased with floral and foliate scroll decoration, with a beaded rim and an acanthus leaf border around the foot. The cup has a single handle, in a lovely scroll design. The front of the cup (opposite the handle) has an inscription reading "Carol Hazel Schotte from Emily E. Whitmore Dec. 26th 1851." This piece is in great condition. There are no splits, no breaks, no dents, no monogram removals, and no repairs. This cup is not stamped or hallmarked, but we have tested it with nitric acid and guarantee it to be coin (900) purity silver. The cup stands about 3 1/4 inches tall. This cup weighs 80.5 grams or 2.8 regular ounces.
