NAVY – Folding Drinking Cup. c 1890-1910
Classic Officers folding cup used from about 1880.. and continuing into WW1.
This is a Private Purchase Naval item, with original leather outer container, with Anchor and inside 3 cup circles which when put together produced a 2 ½ inch high cup.
Mainly produced to conserve space, where frequent movement from ship to ship necessitated the minimum of personal gear. However, it was always nice to have one’s own cup.
White metal – excellent condition..
