Approximately 4.55 troy oz.Monogrammed with an "M", and fully marked with both the Schultz and Hennegen Bates marks. The mint julep drink first appeared in an 1803 recipe book, but it became widely popular in the 1930s.
During this time, Mark J. Searce designed and marketed what we know today as the classic mint julep cup, which is more squat and has a decorative rim. In 1938, the drink became officially linked to the Kentucky Derby and Searce's cup style became the standard in look and size for serving the drink.
Prior to the 1930s, mint juleps were usually served in taller sterling cups, such as this Schultz set currently offered for sale. These early style cups are not easy to find, much less so in a set, and in such good condition. These beauties pre-date the mint julep rage by almost 20 years!
This set was rarely used and is in overall excellent estate condition with some very slight/minor scratching from age and use. Cup has a slight "ring" around it about 1 from the base. It looks as though it could have been made that way or perhaps that the cups were stacked inside one another and left a mark on one.
All the cups also need a good professional polishing. Fun to use or beautiful to display. Questions are welcome, so don't hesitate to ask if you need more info!
