Handled cup with 12 panels on raised ring fitted on 16-paneled saucer, also on raised ring, both engraved in feathered script RM over GBM. Dimensions as follows: cup 2-5/8" high, saucer 5-1/4" diameter; total weight is an imposing 7.25 Troy oz. Condition is excellent throughout. Which, of course, leaves open the question: what is the purpose of an uninsulated silver cup and saucer? One answer is that, in an opulent household, it was used for display, nothing more.
