Bronze gilt mount from a small drinking cup, diam. approx. 5.8cm. The usual simple U-sectioned sheet metal rim, with three triangular repoussé pendants with pearled border and 3 'knot' motifs, the larger spotted. This larger motif has curious angle pieces at top sides. These pendants held in place by stout corrugated silver gilt clips, fastened by single gilded dome-headed rivet. Mounted now on wooden cup. Pendants markedly inbent as if to fit vessel with recessed neck. ?Gourd.
