Tygs / Loving Cup

My tygs / loving cups are based on the old English tyg, (also tyge) which several centuries later than the 1500’s became known as “the loving cup.”

Which ever name is your preference they both refer to a large communal drink container which will have two or more handles attached.

The cup, was often large enough to satisfy the moderate desires of two, three or four persons seated around it, each one of whom could lift it by his own handle and drink from his own side of the rim.
