Hello again
I attach images of a set of 6 small silver cups. They are 6cm tall with a diameter of 5 cm at the lip. They each weigh approx. 55gms. The interior of each cup has been gilded.
They bear a London hallmark with a date letter indicating 1898. I have been unable to identify the maker.
They are all in very good condition with only the slightest blemishes testifying to their useage.
Any thoughts on value please? Also, are they Stirrup Cups?
Regards
Bob

Hi Bob,
The makers mrk is that of George Jackson and David Fullerton.

They look to me to be liquor tots, rather than stirrup cups, and I would think that the set of six is worth around 100-150.

Best regards
Daniel
