A gorgeous vintage silver-plated Julep cup by Eastern Silver Company, circa 1950s, still in its original box. Extremely heavy in weight, this cup is gorgeous with the traditional etched lines at the top and bottom of the cup and it's subtle tapered design. Why not sip your Mint Julep from this stunning vintage beauty?! A bit about Eastern Silver Co: Family owned and operated since the 1950s (based in Brooklyn, NY), Eastern Silver Co. is known for making high-end, quality pieces such as candlestick holders, tableware, and drinkware including Julep cups.
Maker: Eastern Silver Company, 1950s
Measurements: 3 1/2" tall x 3" in diameter; the box measures 4 1/2" tall Hallmarks: There's a tiny blue/silver foil sticker on the bottom of the Julep cup that says "Eastern Silver Co"; the box has the company logo.
Condition: Very good vintage condition with signs of age. This cup appears to have never been used and is still in its original box and packaging/cotton cloth. This cup is silver-plated (EPNS which stands for Electro-plated Nickel Silver over Brass, similar to silver-plating but with more nickel in the metal). However, one side shows wear to the silver-plating (and the brass is showing through). This is purely from age, not use. Please see all photos for reference. The box is in fair condition and definitely shows signs of age including some staining on the top of the box's flap and general wear from age. We have larger sets of Julep cups as well. Please see other listings. Cheers!
