Silver Beakers and Related Drinking Vessels

The Linkspages at

These links are primarily to silver beakers, and a few other metal beakers in related styles, both fancier (including enamel and gilding) and baser (pewter, etc.). Plain glass beakers are not yet discussed on this site, though you'll find a few enamelled glass beakers among the enamelled glassware links.

I’ve noticed a trend among the illustrations & paintings below: beakers like these seem to have been most commonly used with flagons.

(Where to find such a thing for your own use? Some medieval re-enactors have found silver julep cups which approximate the look of these medieval beakers. Some re-creations are available from Billy and Charlie, Steve Millingham, and Medieval Design. (Originals also appear from time to time at eBay and other online auction sites.)
