Hello,
I was given what I think is a christening cup by my grandparents when I was a baby. They were quite affluent and collected many antiques. I am not sure where this cup is from- the hallmark has a vague semblance of a lion, but seems rather distorted if it is and the actual animals on the cup seem more Asian or Middle-Eastern. I am curious as to where it is from, when it was made and how much it might be worth.
Many thanks.[/img]
