Rare enamel beaker – Isle of Man – Laxey Wheel, Douglas Promenade, c. 1895
Rare enamel souvenir beaker for the Isle of Man, with three scenic panels depicting black prints of:
1 Laxey Wheel
2 Douglas Promenade
3 Isle of Man armorial
all set within ornate coloured rococo & scale borders.
Unmarked, c. 1895
The rim with multiple chips to enamel, the base excellent, the prints somewhat faded.
These enamel cups were British, and other examples more often seen are the Russian Tsar Nicholas coronation ‘blood cups’ of 1896, the Queen Victoria 1897 Diamond Jubilee, so a pre-1900 date is probable for this rarity.
