Description

The history behind the famous Jefferson cup:  Thomas Jefferson’s friend and teacher, George Wythe, passed away in 1806, willing him two silver cups .  Preferring a more modern style, he set out to have them redesigned.  So he sent them off to Virginia silversmith, John Letelier, instructing him to melt the cups and remake them into a more popular tumbler design.  Eight low, round-bottomed cups were crafted and returned to Monticello by 1810.   These cups were Jefferson’s family favorites.  Certainly your family will love them, too!
