    First things first I don't think this is Native American but I didn't know what category to list it under. This is Antique Drinking Cup I think is made of Lead and is etched on the whole glass. Also has a maker like stamp on bottom and is very heavy for it's size about 4/5 inches tall. Looks to have been gold gilded at one time. Lots of strange marking and symbols I'm guessing a fraternal piece. Anyone have an idea about this piece?

      The weight is what made me think lead.

      Also I used the magnet on the cup and it isn't magnetic.

      I'm gonna have to get it tested it's hand carved etchings Into it and looking at the unevenness of the cup looks to have been hand forged. Getting a period is also the other challenge I'm having with the dating.
