|Object Name||Cup, Coffee|
This cup is part of a service that was commissioned by a Jacobite sympathizer, which can be seen from the coat, crest, and decoration on the cup.
The rim design on the cup was popular just before 1790, two years after the death of Prince Charles Edward Stuart, who failed in 1745 and 1746 to secure the throne for the Jacobite cause.
