"Tot cups" are small drinking vessels, sometimes with a single handle,
or handleless, in beaker form.
They are usually footed and dram size (about two inches).
Tot cups are said to be predecessors of the later Georgian "stirrup cups" -
so popular in both silver and ceramic from the mid-18th century forward.
Tot cups, like stirrup cups, were likely handed to riders before or after a hunt,
and meant to be drunk without putting the vessel down.
Early tot cups are also very scarce, of not rare.
Condition : Excellent, normal wear, and without repairs or splitting; good marks verso
