The earliest known sterling silver beaker is in the Victoria and Albert Museum and is hallmarked in 1496, however examples from before the 17th Century are very rare. Since then beakers have been manufactured in the UK in many different styles, from the strikingly simple forms of the late 18th Century, to ornately chased or engraved examples from the Victorian period. For travelling, collapsible beakers were made, and in the 20th century some outstanding Art Deco, Art Nouveau, and Modernist designs can be found.
