This gorgeous, light-catching cup was spun on our 100-year-old lathe by Danforth's senior spinner as a gift for a co-worker. Like all our drinkware, each cup we sell is made individually.
A twist on the classic Jefferson cup, the hammered and polished finish on this cup beautifully reflects light. It measures 2.75” high and 3” in diameter and holds 8 ounces.
This cup is the third in our series of Jefferson cups. All three are authentic pewter reproductions of one of the eight silver cups designed by Thomas Jefferson and made by the craftsman John Letelier of Richmond, Virginia.
Pewter barware is excellent for cold drinks. The metal retains a pleasant chill and traps in a liquid's coldness, making it perfect for a chilled cocktail, cold beer, or white wine.
We recommend hand-washing all pewter barware with warm soap and water, then drying it completely with a soft cloth.
Our pewter meets or exceeds all FDA food-safety standards.
Due to the texture of the cup, it is not engravable.
