Mazer

A cup; so called from the British masarn (maple); Dutch, maeser. Like our copus-cups in Cambridge, and the loving-cup of the London Corporation.

“A mazer wrought of the maple ware.” Spenser: Calendar (August).

`Bring bither,' he said, `the mazers four
My noble fathers loved of yore.'

Sir Walter Scott: Lord of the Isles.
