While the monogram has not been positively identified, it is possible it for Abraham Brinkerhof (1745-1823) a known patron of Myers. See David L. Barquist, Jewish Silversmith in New York, p 180 - 184. Barquist notes, " A small beaker marked by Myers engraved with an "AB" monogram in Rococo foliage may also have been made for him," p. 180.
