Note :

"Tot cups" are small drinking vessels, sometimes with a single handle, or handleless, in beaker form. 

They are usually footed and dram size (about two inches). 

Tot cups are said to be predecessors of the later Georgian “stirrup cups” -

so popular in both silver and ceramic from the mid-18th century forward. 

Tot cups, like stirrup cups, were likely handed to riders before or after a hunt,

 and meant to be drunk without putting the vessel down.
