Jefferson Cups - $15 (Charlottesville)

condition: excellent
Graduation Gift!!!
In 1810, when Thomas Jefferson commissioned a silversmith to make eight cups from his own design, he probably never imagined how popular they would become. Exquisitely simple, extremely versatile, these pewter Jefferson cups are as suitable for serving a festive punch as they are for holding cufflinks or paper clips. In the 1830s Jefferson’s daughter, Martha Jefferson Randolph, gave one cup to each of her six children, and one to a grandson. Since then, only six of the original eight survive. (Reproductions Sell at the Monticello Museum Shop for $45 each.) Holds approximately 7 oz., Engravable, $15 EACH - Makes the perfect Christmas or Graduation Gift!
