1965T425 Cup, Tumbler or Salt Holder, 1650-1700 Pinto Collection - Purchased from Edward H Pinto, 1965. This walnut tumbler holder, made around 1675-1700, would most likely have been the work of a rural craftsman working on a pole lathe. The marks of the lathe can be clearly seen on the underside of the vessel. The sharply pointed interior of the bowl is characteristic of this type of vessel which was used to hold the pointed tumblers which were not able to stand up by themselves. Although the ring turning on the stem is quite heavy, it is interesting to see that the stem has been made up of two different widths.
