Thank you jscott, I think they're very cute too! :) Thank you Newfld, two have Steiff tags. :)
Kyra - how cool! thanks for sharing that! :) Mac - lol! Great idea!!
Fh, how interesting!!! Thank you!
Gemmy, I've not found anything more than what I've learned here! I'd love to hear if you learn more! What a fun "treasure" we have! :) Blunder, I'm with you, I ran out of ideas a long time ago! LOL!...
LOL Efe! I know, I'm sorry, I just couldn't imagine how minutes could make sense. :/ The fact that I can't find one other picture of one of these and that nobody here has seen one makes no sense eithe...
I keep going back to mcheconi's comment above (#14). It would make minutes make sense and also the 9... going down by 2 at a time. What do you all think?
Vet~ I'm still looking too! :) THANKS for the help and all the great info! The difference of 3 and then 2 is curious!! I also don't feel like the inside marks match exactly with the outside. I guess m...

I updated the pictures, with better ones, to maybe help determine age and such. Thanks! :)
Blunder ~ LOL! We'll just say that it's still an unsolved mystery and leave it at that! ;) Mchec ~ I know, a min took the place of a drop basically, from what I've read, but it's all I could come u...
The wikipedia article above said that min was an abbreviation for minim. That was the only thing I could find that I thought it could be.
Thanks Celiene! Interesting, right? :) Thanks for trying on that link too, I fought with it for a while and it just doesn't want to go straight to that page! LOL!
LOL Avua! This little cup is less than 2 inches tall, so therefore not recommended for liquor! LOL! Efesgirl, That's what I thought too, until I found it here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minim_...
Very interesting! Thank you for posting this! I love learning about new (to me) old things! ;) Good luck!!
