One-handled silver cup, encrusted and crushed. 335 grams, approx. 7" x 4". Atocha silver artifacts are premium pieces, but this one has not yet undergone conservation, which would require re-shaping and removal of its veneer of encrustation, with no guarantee that the thin metal would survive, so it is probably best left as a curiosity, with its one small handle prominent, the body of the piece all there but split. From the Atocha, sunk in 1622 west of Key West, Florida, with original Fisher certificates #A281 and 1751.
