UP FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IS A WONDERFUL PIECE OF SHIPPING HISTORY AND IT IS A VARY RARE FIND. IT LOOKS LIKE A WINE TASTER CUP AND IT WAS MADE FOR THE LAUNCHING OF THE SS BRASIL MAIDEN VOYAGE ON THE MOORE MCCORMACK, LINES INC. IN 1957, THIS GOES AROUND THE OUTER PART OF THE PIECE. THE BOTTOM HAS 925 STERLING SILVER INDUSTRIA ARGENTINA AND UNDER THAT IN SCRIPT, WRIGHT LOC ANON BUENES AIRES. IT WEIGHS 100 GRAMS AND HAS A STERLING SILVER COIN IN THE CENTER OF THE PIECE THAT READS 400 REIS 1926 REPUBLICA DOS ESTODOS do BRASIL. THAT IS ALL I KNOW ABOUT THIS FINE PIECE OF STERLING SILVER. IT CAN PRESENTLY BE USED FOR A BERRY BOWL, LOOSE CHANGE OR EVEN AN ASHTRAY IF YOU WISH. I LOVE THIS PIECE OF HISTORY AND IT IS OFFERED AT A VERY LOW PRICE. PERFECT FOR HOME BAR OR WINE CELLAR.
