"Tot cups" are small cups, usually footed as a beaker, and dram size - about 2 inches.
From c1670 to 1760, tot cups were handed to riders before or after a hunt,
or as a "friendship cup" to riders at the beginning or end of a journey.
Said to be predecessors of the later footless Georgian 'stirrup cups',
they too were meant to be drunk without putting the vessel down
Early tot cups are relatively scarce.
