1903 silver Irish Methyr cup by Dublin maker Weir & Son.
That good things can come in tiny parcels – and at affordable prices – is evidenced by a 1903 silver Irish Methyr cup by Dublin maker Weir & Son. Celtic in origin, the Methyr cup dates back to medieval times when it was used to hold the monks’ favourite tipple, mead, made from fermented honey and water. Buy it from the Silver Shop, Powerscourt Townhouse in Dublin, priced €295; see silvershopdublin.com.
