Spanish moss dripping from towering tangles of southern oaks and the sweet sound of cicadas are just two of the things that often come to mind when one thinks about the south. The enduring tradition of quaffing refined mint juleps on a sweltering afternoon is another. We here at Silver and Pewter Gifts can’t provide you with the oaks and cicadas. However, we do have handcrafted pewter julep cups that will undoubtedly inspire your guests to channel their inner Rhetts and Scarlets. Here’s more:
Modeled after the works of Bavarian-born silversmith Anthony Rasch von Tauffkirchen, our Louisiana Julep Cups are sure to please. They come in two sizes, 12 ounces and 9 ounces. Each one features an ageless beaded border with ample room on the sides for personalized embellishments. Handcrafted and romantic, they would be ideal for a night spent sipping mint juleps under the stars.
Those that prefer the timeless work of silversmith George Macpherson may want to gravitate towards our Mississippi Julep Cups instead. They feature a beaded base and top rim, making it one of the prettier of the juleps. One of the handcrafted pewter julep cups is capable of accommodating a 9 ounce drink. The other is more suited for refreshing, 12 ounce creations. Both feature the option of engraving the cup’s sides with a notation or design element to commemorate your special event.
Of course no respectable collection of customizable, handcrafted pewter julep cups would be complete without a nod to Kentucky. That’s why we’ve added two Bluegrass State inspired versions to ours. The lead free, enduring heirloom pieces would look just as stately on a mantle as they would filled with cocktails and mint sprigs. Sizes range from 9 to 12 ounces.
The previously mentioned, handcrafted pewter julep cups are just a smidgen of what’s available in the State Julep Cups. We also offer beautiful cups inspired by 18th and 19th century silversmiths from the Carolinas, Tennessee, New York, Texas, Georgia, and many more. These Cup Collections are perfect for graduation gifts when engraved with a school name and year of commencement. They also make a truly spectacular wedding gift when engraved with bridal monograms.
