This silver brass cup -which I think was probably used as a cigarette holder/jar- is one of the classic designs of Josef Hoffmann for the Wiener Werkstätte in the early 1920s . It's got an lobulated oval shaped base and has the traditional grooved surface of his items from this period.
It stands 7,2 cm. tall and is stamped with “WIENER WERKSTÄTTE” on the underside (pic.3)
On pic.4 you can see two similar ones standing 6,2 and 7,1 cm. tall. The pic was taken from the catalogue of a famous auction house.
