Rare - Cunard R.M.S. Caronia Silver Wine taster Cup with Box

This rare cup was produced for the Cunard R.M.S. Caronia in the early 20th century. It is said that a silver wine taster reflects the wine better than a glass one in the dim light of the cellars in which it is tasted. Enjoy the experience of finer palates with this traditional and timeless cup.

Condition: Preowned, No dents, Minor wear


Cup weights 132 grams

Hallmarks: H/BRS, Crown, Lion, Y

R.M.S Caronia launched on 30 October 1947, she served with Cunard until 1967. She was initially nicknamed the "Green Goddess" after Liverpool's green and white "Green Goddess" trams, and the nickname stuck. She was one of the first "dual-purpose" ships, built both for 2-class transatlantic crossings and all 1st-class cruising. After leaving Cunard she briefly served as SS Caribia in 1969, after which she was laid up in New York until 1974, when she was sold for scrap. While being towed to Taiwan for scrapping, she was caught in a storm on 12 August. After her tow lines were cut, she repeatedly crashed on the rocky breakwater outside Apra Harbor, Guam and broke into three sections.
