A Georgian Old Sheffield Plate Horn Beaker

This beautiful Old Sheffield Plate horn beaker was made circa 1800. It is a charming piece, well loved and well worn, but in good condition. Alas it is not usable, as it appears to have lost the metal bottom of the cup at some stage in its life.

Georgian Horn beakers are somewhat rare in Old Sheffield Plate, and this is a charming example.

Type: Cups
Function: drinking
Country: England

Price: £ 150 GBP
