|Object Name||Cup, Coffee|
This cup may have been made for the Anglo-Dutch Simon Theunemans, a London merchant who served as a director of the Honourable East India Company from 1720 until 1732.
Theunemans also tried his hand at manufacturing, receiving a patent in 1694 for "his invention of printing, on oilcloth and leather, gold and silver flowers and figures in different colours, which would last in wet or dry weather."
Alternately, the cup could have been made for Daniel Tuineman, who worked for the Dutch East India Company and sailed to China in 1732-33.
