27246d. (souvenir cup) Nauset 3 Sisters Lights, Eastham, Mass. c.1900.

27246d. (souvenir cup) Nauset 3 Sisters Lights, Eastham, Mass. c.1900. This early piece is quite handsome and enhanced by gilt trim and handle decoration. Bold cup features a detailed b/w image of the “three sisters” lighthouses and keeper’s house in Eastham. Before the advent of a lighthouse lens that could produce a flash, three lighthouses were utilized in Eastham to aid mariners in recognizing the location. The three light towers were replaced by a single cast iron light tower, moved up from Chatham, in 1923. The cup measures 2 ¼ ” high by 2 ¼” in diameter. Marked “Made in Germany [for] A. T. Newcomb, Orleans, Mass.”. Cup is clean, bright, no chips or cracks, just light wear to gilded edge and handle. An unusually bright, bold piece for display. (VG+). $195.
