This blog has been set up to help understand the visual and material culture of drinking in Early Modern England. I can only apologise for the poor quality of some of the photos; I am no photographer. Please click on the various posts to find out more information.
This fuddling cup produced in Staffordshire and dated from 1689-1702 is interesting in that it has an inscription on it:
HEARE IS A HEALTH TO K W
The fuddling cup is therefore explicitly linked to the drinking of healths.
