|Object Name||Cup, Coffee|
This cup is part of a large beverage service made for a member of the Sunnybanck family of Oxfordshire. The arms are a pun on the family name; a sun over a mound, or bank of earth.
Some large services had two sizes of tall, handled cups in addition to handle-less tea bowls. The smaller cups were probably intended for coffee, while the larger were probably for hot chocolate.
