Looks like a soup can. What drew you to it? I liked your last one.

Shortly after the American revolution, the fashion changed for these drinking vessels. At least that's how it seems to me. Curves and flourishes start to disappear, and the mugs begin taking on elements of barrels (staves, straps, even rivets) to the point that lifelike barrels with handles become the fashion.

Image


I like that style, though maybe not so over the top literal. Unfortunately, I've only seen one piece that really fits in with the mugs I collect (pre-revolutionary war). It sold quickly and I haven't seen another. There are many from 1780 onward.

This piece I bot tonight is actually late to the game at 1793. But the form is just off the charts.

This isn't 1920s Bauhaus, 1930s art deco, or mid-century modern.

This is 225 years ago. George Washington wasn't just still alive. He was the mother effing president.

There were 10 watchers of this piece. I made a lowball offer figuring there was no way. But they took it.

Can you get legit nice medieval-period stuff at an affordable price? I would love to have something from the 1500's or something.

I would be curious to see how they made it. Looks like modern machining.

I don't think I've ever seen smoething quite that old for sale. Pieces from the mid- to late 1600s are available, but they don't come cheap:

Those are pretty sweet. They need some dirt rubbed in them.

Nice buy, and frankly, a reasonable price considering what you are actually getting.

We'll see when it arrives. If the silhouette looks anything like it does in the pictures, it was a bargain. :)

Very slick for the era. I don't think anyone would have guessed it being 225 years old. I would've guess the 1930's at the earliest. Cool piece though. My only concern is in displaying; I would not want to show the side that reveals its anus (top pic).
