Silver Tumbler Cup – impossible to topple over! Available in 3 different sizes and have feature hallmarks.

There are various theories as to the origin of the tumbler. A skilled silversmith produces these tumbler cups making sure that the bottom of the tumbler is sufficiently heavy in relation to the rest of the piece to ensure that when knocked it instantly rights itself. In earlier times rough tables might not have provided an stable surface for a drinking vessel, and in any case who wants to risk knocking over their drink!

Our favourite story is that they were used on ships, so that they did not topple over in rough seas.

Tumblers are ideal for brandy as the warmth of the cupped hand is quickly conducted by the silver to the liquid within, however champagne also tastes better when drunk from silver!
