Quality Silver - Sensible Prices. Tygs are 3-handled cups that were traditionally used as friendship cups or used during important celebrations, such as at weddings. A drink was taken from the cup using two handles and then passed on to the next person with the third. This example is a particularly large example and is ideal for use as a silver bottle stand or wine cooler.
The wine cooler is cylindrical in form with a coopered barrel effect and has a generous capacity that will easily take a white wine or champagne bottle together with chilling ice. A tyg makes the perfect vessel for this purpose as it can be easily passed around the table with a glass of wine poured out rather than the traditional swig of drink! This Victorian silver tyg was made by the prestigious London retailers, Mappin & Webb, and has a super heavy weight of well over 1kg 37 tr. It is in first class polished condition.
