Pair of American Sterling Silver Beakers

Sold
  • New York, circa 1970 by Tiffany and Company
  • Dimensions: 2 3/4 inches tall, 2 7/8 inches top circumference

A silver beaker is a drinking vessel, most commonly with a cylindrical body. Beakers generally forgo handles or a lid and are very similar in shape and style as to what is now referred to as a tumbler. During the Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian eras, beakers were often used by travelers as they were easy to transport due to their size. This is a handsome pair of American Sterling Silver Beakers that are very plain in design.
