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!

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
