Description 🔉

A late 19th century Tupenny Lick Glass for holding a scoop of Ice Cream, before the introduction of wafers or cornets, which was sold by a street vendor. The practice was stopped in the early 20th century because the glasses were not properly cleaned between customers and were responsible for the spread of Typhoid amongst the population.
