Newport Sterling 1673 Silver Mint Julep Cups - Set of 2 - 112g ea.. This is two (2) Newport Sterling 1673 Mint Julep Cups. My grandparents bought them, but I'm not sure when (safe bet would be mid-century). "Newport Sterling 1673" is stamped into the bottom of each (this would be the model number, I'm guessing, not the year of manufacture).
Other than the maker's stamp on the bottom, they are not engraved, modified or embellished in any way. They are made of Sterling Silver and each weighs 112g. They are around 3-3/4" tall and 3" wide at the top. There is some wear on the cups, so please examine carefully the detailed photos above. They are the same set of cups in all the photos -- just photographed on a white table and then a wooden buffet.
So you can see that they are very shiny, but even so, you can probably clean them up better than I did. Or you can use them for their intended purpose of drinking mint juleps with someone you care deeply for (and this is what I would recommend, personally :). If you have any questions, please contact me through here prior to purchasing. I'm not a silverware expert by any stretch of the imagination, but these are some cool, classy and shiny cups. And they're made with silver so they would make a great anniversary present!
