Incense cup
« on: October 17, 2012, 08:04:13 PM »
This was an "eyes only" find and I wonder if anybody knows what it is.  Somebody found this on the side of a mountain in Crete and I said I would try to find out more about it.  It may be pewter and the inside of the small cup is lined with either brass or gold.  Perhaps an incense cup?  The only apparent markings:  four sets of circumference lines.  Weight is 275 g.  Height 85mm.  It appears to have had a lid which is missing.

Thanks Shug, yes it may be a communion cup or wine cup but so far I have not seen anything quite like it on the net.

Is "somebody" still in Greece? Cos if they've brought this out of the country they could find themselves in deep doo-doo!  :o :o
