This handled American coin silver cup was made by William K. Vanderslice in San Francisco, CA, circa 1870, consisting of a simple tapered cylindrical form with rope banding around rim and base. Vanderslice was an early California silversmith, working in the mid 19th century. He became widely acclaimed for his fine silverwork. This cup is marked with his name, San Francisco, makers mark and Pure Coin. The cup measures 3 1/2" high, 4 5/8" across including handle, and weighs a little over 5 troy ounces. There are some small pin dots on the cup, age appropriate wear (spots of tarnish) but on the whole in excellent condition. The piece is simple and classic in form. The silver has a wonderful rich patina.
