A stunning set of 4 vintage heavy silver-plated Julep cups by EG Webster & Sons, late 1940s. These vintage Julep cups have a magical feel to them. They are extremely solid/heavy in weight and well-crafted. They feature the traditional "footed" base and tapered design and a "beaded" design on the upper and lower part of the cup. They are slightly larger than other vintage Julep cups we've sold. Truly a stunning set. Why not serve your drinks or Mint Juleps in these stunning vintage Mint Julep cups?!

Maker: EG Webster & Sons

A bit about this maker: The firm of Elizur G. Webster began the silverplating activity at 175 Broadway, NY in 1860. In 1867 the Webster Manufacturing Co was incorporated with E.G. Webster as president and A.A. Webster as secretary but in 1875 the firm changed its name back to E.G. Webster & Brother. In 1886 A.A. Webster left the partnership (forming A.A. Webster & Co) and E.G. Webster formed a new partnership with his son Fred H. Webster under the name of E.G. Webster & Son. E.G. Webster died in 1900 and the business was continued by his son Fred H. Webster until 1928 when the firm was sold to International Silver Co.

We have another set of vintage Julep cups by this maker, if you're interested in a larger set. They have quite a a bit more patina/tarnish to them. Please see other listings. Cheers!

Measurements: each cup is 4 1/2" tall x 3 1/4" in diameter

Hallmarks: Each cup has "EGW & S" and "IS" in small boxes (which stands for International Silver) on the bottom

Condition: Good vintage condition with mild signs of age/general wear. There's mild surface wear and general age that comes from pieces that are 90+ years old but overall the silver-plating is in very good condition. A few of the cups have dark "age spots" to the very bottom interiors (see photo #6) that will likely not polish away. There's mild tarnish to the exterior of the cups. No dents or dings. In short, these antique Julep cups are in very good vintage condition with mild age/wear. They display beautifully.

**On shipping: We take our packaging very seriously and carefully wrap all pieces to ensure safe delivery. Please note: we're not making a penny! These cups are solid/very heavy in weight and will be packed well to ensure safe arrival, which means a larger, heavier box!
