I have a juleps cup marked "Hudson Dolfinger Louisville" I have done a web search and foud an identical cup. Apparently it is coin silver. Hudson Dolfinger operated in the 1850's.
Can anyone tell me more . Was Hudson Dolfinger a silver manufacturer or a retailer?

Henry Hudson was a manufacturing silversmith per the 1850 Louisville, KY census. He was active there from 1841-ca. 1880, and died in 1888. He entered into a short-lived partnership with one of his shop workers, Jacob Dolfinger, about 1855. By 1858 Hudson was working independantly again.

Anytime, oh distant cousin. Just remember to do as Henry Clay advised and crush your mint with a coin silver spoon as well.
