Leather Cased Beaker with Goblet Measure


Category: Other Travel Items

Subcategory: Eating & Drinking

A large silver plated Beaker containing a goblet and measure in a leather case.

The foot of the goblet can also be used as a measure when it's turned upside down or as a smaller cup. The set has no marks other than a 6 to the base of the beaker. The exact use of this set is unknown but it's possible it was for mixing drinks in the field and may have been used in conjunction with a flask set. The hide case is well made and originally would have had a shoulder strap. It's likely the belt strap is an old replacement. Late 19th Century.
