Originating in Germany in the 16th Century, the wager cup is a drinking vessel intended for use at a wedding ceremony, giving rise to the alternative name of ‘wedding cup’. The Groom would drink from the larger cup formed by the skirt, and the Bride would drink from the smaller cup held above the figures head. They were also used for drinking games in Victorian England, where men bet on whether they could finish one cup without spilling from the other.
