"CUR" at the beginning of an image file name means that the image was created by a curatorial staff member. These study images may be digital point-and-shoot photographs, when we don\'t yet have high-quality studio photography, or they may be scans of older negatives, slides, or photographic prints, providing historical documentation of the object.
A globular silver mate cup with floral decoration both free-standing and applied. A peacock-like bird adorns the rim on two sides. The stemmed mate cup rests on a three-footed tray with upside-down flowers in pots used for the feet, and a decorative leaf-like design around the rim. Three of the free-standing floral surrounds remain, one has broken off.
