Brass cup embossed with floral designs. The cups general shape is cyclendrical but with a smaller circumfrence just under the lip and just above the base. The embossed decoration covers the area just beloow the first of these to the widest part of the cup. The design is abstract with soft, rounded forms. The skinniest and widest bands of the cup are decorated by clustered pattern of small circular indents.
The cup was formerly owned by Helen Gravenites.
There is no indication that this cup was actually used for drinking and so was most likely used as decoration.
