Estonian Silver cup with a Liberty Cross miniature added


Recommended Posts

All.

Thoght it was lost, but I found it today! I have this little Silver cup with an added Liberty Cross. The cup is 65 mm high and the cross has enamelled arms, so I assume it should indicate one of the higher classes although I cannot be sure weather it's a 1st or 2nd grade cross. The cup is made by Tavast and have the inscription "Meie täname" which google translates to "Our thanks to" and the date 10. V 34.

Would anybody here know at which event this cup were given, to whom and if the date means something special? A google search did not do the trick for me!

Regards, Lars

Hi Andres, thanks for the video and info, this makes sense, now I hope to understand weather this was some kind of official award or more a family or comrades gift to someone.

A few years ago another Cross of Liberty memorabilia was offered at a Swedish auction, it became quite expensive so it didn't went my way, but here's a picture!

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
