Post subject: HEIRLOOM STIRUP-CUP :
We are trying to decipher the hallmarks on this silver “Stirrup cup”.
It came from Scotland late last century by my great great grandmother who worked in Killochen castle.
It has 1561 enscribed on it and what could be a signature.
I have tried to match the hallmarks without much luck.
We have always wondered what the history behind the cup may be and was hoping someone could help us
Its very difficult to shoot as the hallmarks are inside the base
