Engraved with arms above crossed plumes.
Designed to cradle in the hand and self-stabilise when set down, made with a weighted bottom as to readily ‘tumble’ and not overturn if titled - all a testament to exceptional design and craftsmanship. They were often used at sea in order to withstand the rolling of the ship, intentionally small in size to only contain a single draught and then handed back to a server empty.
