About

A fine and impressive antique English sterling silver mounted coconut cup; an addition to our diverse silverware collection. This impressive antique sterling silver mounted coconut cup has a circular rounded form onto a circular pedestal foot. The upper portion of this antique coconut cup is encircled with the original sterling silver border to the rim embellished with pin struck undulating and trefoil shaped borders. The plain coconut vessel surmounts a fine and impressive turned mahogany wood pedestal and circular foot. The rim of the foot is encircled with a plain sterling silver mount. Note: Coconut cups were popular in the late 15th and early 16th centuries as it was believed that the shell of the coconut would act as a natural defence against poison. The shells shape and scarcity of the commodity enabled the wealthy to mount the shells in precious metals to allow them to be used as respectable and highly treasured drinking vessels.
