Clear Glass Tumbler, Glass Tumbler Encased in Sterling Silver, Hand Wrought Sterling Silver, Mexican Sterling Silver Tumbler, GIL Sterling Silver, Sterling Silver Vase, Vintage Tumbler, Etched Sterling Silver

This is a beautiful vintage clear glass tumbler that is encased in ornate hand-wrought sterling silver. Add this to your existing set of sterling silver tumblers or use it as a small vase or other decorative item. The silver is crafted into the shapes of flowers and leaves, with finely etched details on their tops. The bottom of the tumbler is marked “Hecho en Mexico (Made in Mexico), GIL, 925”. It was likely made before the late 1940s, when the period began that Mexican silversmiths were required to mark their products with an eagle and/or (eventually) a registered letter and number.

This tumbler is 2 1/2 inches (wide) by 7 inches (high).

This item is in excellent condition, with no chips, cracks, or breaks in the sterling silver. The silver has not been cleaned, with a chemical or a machine, and needs to be polished.

I will assist the buyer with obtaining compensation for the damaged shipment, to the extent that I am able to.
