This circular form with pronounced hammer marks takes its name after John Letelier’s commission from Thomas Jefferson. The president wrote, “ I think those should be made out of 5 oz. avoirdupoise weight nearly. they must be about half an inch higher in order to hold a little bit more than the model does in every respect I wish the model to be exactly imitated.” Six of the eight cups that Jefferson commissioned survive. They measure 2 5/8” height and 4.8 avoirdupois ounces.

Old Newbury Crafters has been hand crafting silver for over 100 years.

2 3/4” height, 3 1/4” top diameter. 4.92 troy ounces.
