At one point before the American Revolution, there were 22 rum distilleries in the city of Newport!  Made by distilling the byproduct from sugarcane, molasses, it quickly became a popular spirit and prized commodity.  Commonly drank at sea, a ship's purser would ration out the rum by 'tot' to individuals aboard.  

This handmade copper and brass cup measures one 'tot' and features a crown and anchor for the Royal Navy.  Slightly larger than today's standard 1 oz shot glass, this cup makes an interesting addition to one's bar as it not only serves as a measuring device, but conversation piece.
