This miniature silver plate mug or stein was probably a souvenir toothpick holder. It's engraved with the word "Denver" on the side, and the hallmark on the bottom is the Marion Plate Co., along with the word "Quadruple." It probably dates to the Victorian era.

Quadruple silver plate was some of the finest made in the late 19th century. These items were coated four times as heavily with silver as "standard" silver plate items. The word "quadruple" was not used much for silver plate after 1900.

I have left the patina on this cute little cup, but you could also try some polish on it. It is in nice shape, with no dents, and only light scratches. There is a lot of tarnish and age spots.

A nice keepsake for a Denver fan, this would also look cute with a miniature or doll display!
