Drinking Vessels of Bygone Days


Some interesting cups here such as the Pot Crown.

A very similar vessel to the fuddling cup, much beloved by rustic swains of bygone days was called a ” Pot Crown, consisting of a hollow ring – shaped base from which rose four cups and four tubes, the latter meeting in the centre, thus forming a rudely – constructed crown; at the apex of the crown there was a single upright tube which was internally connected with the four branch tubes, which in turn were also internally connected through the ring at the base to the bowl of each cup.
