|Object Name||Cup, Coffee|
The arms on this cup, though incorrectly painted, are probably those of the Malet family of England.
It was likely made for a relative of Charles Warre Malet (1752-1815) who was made a baronet in 1761 in recognition of his diplomatic service in India. Charles Malet had two armorial services, which may have influenced a relative to commission the service from which this cup comes.
