A delightful little 19th century silver wager cup by D&J Wellby London. Hallmark date lettering 1909. Nicely embossed, upper swivel ornate cup , bell shaped skirt cup . Hallmarked to base and top cup . In very good condition.
Originating in Germany in the 16th century the wager cup is a drinking vessel intended for use at a wedding ceremony, giving rise to the alternative name of ‘wedding cup’ . The groom would drink from the larger cup formed by the skirt , and the bride would drink from the smaller cup held above the figures head . They were also used for drinking games in the Victorian England , where men bet on whether they could finish one cup without spilling from the other . This piece would make an ideal wedding gift .
