The name “tumbler” is traced to the mid – 17th Century. A tumbler is a stem-less, often flat-bottomed drinking vessel which is typically taller than 3 inches. When filled with wine, this curved and heavier base allowed the cup to tumble from side to side without spilling. In today’s society, most people prefer using them for cold drinks like lemonade, iced teas, smoothies and summer cocktails. This is a very attractive set of 4 American Sterling Silver Tumbler Cups that are quite elegant in style.
