A beaker is a stemless, handleless drinking vessel taller than it is wide. Sometimes term a tumbler. These vessels could be made from pottery, wood, leather, horn and, much rarer, glass. Later in the medieval period, pewter would also be used.

Used across the spectrum, some beakers could be quite elaborate whereas others would be rather plain. It would be appropriate to match your drinking vessel to your representation.
