Title: 1965T502 Double-Ended Cup
Description: 1965T502
Double-Ended Cup, 1700-1800
Pinto Collection - Purchased from Edward H Pinto, 1965.
Made in Sweden
This birch burr fluted double cup is Swedish, dating from the 18th century. Burr wood was used for many luxury drinking vessels as not only is it both rare and beautiful, but it is capable of withstanding both dry and damp conditions. The diagonal flutes on this cup mirror the designs found on Swedish silver at this time.
