Originating in the 17th century, sterling silver tumbler cups were designed with a rounded base, which was manufactured to be thicker than the sides. This curved and heavier base allowed the cup to rock without spilling, a functionality that was particularly useful when travelling on a stage coach. In the 17th and 18th Centuries tumbler cups were very popular in both the UK and America, and they have continued to be so since then, both with collectors, and as gifts for any occasion.
