What Is It?:

Try and get your head around this ...

You’ll go to top of the glass if you can guess this one

Among the an­tiques and de­light­fully odd bits and pieces lin­ing the shelves and ta­bles of The Drill Hall in New Nor­folk, was this lit­tle glass ves­sel.

The item, made in Eng­land in the early 1900s, re­sem­bles an egg cup or a small chal­ice.

How­ever, the nar­row, al­mond­shaped open­ing at the top could not fit an egg, and may make drink­ing a lit­tle awk­ward.

The dark blue colour may have more to do with the use of the item, rather than aes­thetic.

The cobalt blue glass has a trade­mark stamp in the bot­tom, a ‘W’ out­lined in a rec­tan­gu­lar box.

Maybe you know what this in­ter­est­ing lit­tle cup is, or maybe you have used one your­self.
