This antique quadruple plate child's cup is from my own collection of antique silverplate children's cups, which I'm in the process of ruthlessly culling. I thought this was one of my least favorite, with its homely shape that vaguely resembles a chamberpot, and its simple detailing, consisting only of a delicately beaded edge around the top and base.

Once I'd shined it up, though, revealing a lovely combination of soft shine and tarnish (there's a reason silverplate lovers favor quadrupleplate!), I realized that this is the perfect size and shape to hold a small plant, like the mint shown in my photos.

Alas, I don't have a kitchen windowsill, so I'm hoping to find this a good home. As shown, it's in good antique condition, with wear to the plate but no significant scratching or dings. It measures two inches high and 2&7/8 inches in diameter at top.
