Pair of Jefferson Cups
A Pair of Jefferson Cups by Poole. Sterling silver (.925), American (Massachusetts), c. mid-20th century.
This style of cup was designed by Thomas Jefferson, who thought the shape was better for tasting wine than the standard tumbler used by most people of his time. This form is still used in modern wine glasses, showing that his theory has stood the test of time.
