Hi , This has the Austrian confectionery firm Victor Schmidt & Sohne name  upon it.
I think it's Victorian ?

Is there a name for this type of oval cup or glass  ? I have tried hip flasks , stirrup cups , toasting cups and many others but with no luck , or did this perhaps just hold confectionery ?

Any help would be much appreciated.

measures slightly under 4" high
Cheers , Dave.

It's probably just a container; it looks like it had a lid

in german it's a Taschen-Becher i.e. a glass for your pocket  :)
being far from home can't help with the inscription at present, perhaps later this month.  ;D

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

Thanks for the answers here ,

A Taschen-Becher it is then !
Victor Schmidt became Victor Schmidt & Sohne in 1872 , I'd guess this is from around 1880s ?

Thanks again for your input , Dave :)
