I believe that this was designed as a whisky tot cup for when one was out and about. However, with a 60ml capacity, it could also be used as a measure or shot cup. It is hallmarked to the side and base for Glasgow 1862 with the makers mark of Lawrence Aitchison. This cup is in beautiful condition with no kinks to the rim and no dents or dints to the body. The only things I can find to mention is an extremely light dink to the edge of the base and 2 tiny dints to the base (none noticeable from above)/ Please be aware that, after 160 years, there will be some light surface abrasions caused through use and there is a fine ring of staining around the inside edge of the base.PLEASE SCROLL DOWN PAGE TO SEE MORE IMAGES Approximate Measurements.
