Case of Beakers With Corkscrew

Case of Beakers With Corkscrew

Sold

A leather cased set of 4 plated small Beakers with a gilt wash to their interior.

The set also has a fifth, funnel shaped cup that holds a small corkscrew to its centre on a screw fitting. Although this cup looks like a funnel, it cannot be used as such and the shape is purely designed to take the corkscrew. As it has a gilt wash it was meant to hold liquid. The design is certainly unusual but considered with travel in mind. The set has no maker's marks. Early 20th Century.

Case Size is given.
