Pair of vintage metal handled coffee cups beautifully ornate with a hand etched and dotted floral folk art motif.

Mini metal glasses stand 1 1/2'' tall (3.8 cm) and together the two cups weigh 2.8 oz (80 gr).
Metal is not pulled by the magnet. It looks like tin plated brass. Bottoms are stamped with an "S".

These little mugs are related to the Islamic Hajj pilgrimage site at Mecca, Saudi Arabia. Pilgrims use cups like these to drink tea and coffee prepared with the waters of the local well known as "Zam Zam". The Well of Zamzam is located by the Kaaba, the holiest place in Islam. According to Islamic belief, it is a miraculously-generated source of water which began thousands of years ago when Abraham's infant son Ishmael was thirsty and kept crying for water. Muslims believe this well would never run dry.

Metal shows some tarnish and discoloration especially on the interior. There are surface scratches and dark spots. Cups need cleaning and would benefit from polishing. There are no cracks, tears or holes.

Please let me know if you have any questions. I can gladly upload or send you photos from different angles if you like.
