These incredible vintage Scandinavian Kuksa cup are hand carved with a stylised acanthus design. They would most likely have been used as a wedding cup, symbolising the sharing of a new life together, and are thought to be made from birch burr.
Would make a gorgeous little shelf feature or special pen pot.
Styles 1-4 are shown in the fist photo from left to right.
As per the photograph above, this vintage piece is sold as a decorative, collectible item to brighten up a little shelf. It should not be used in play by people under 14 years of age.
