Paul C2:
Thanks very much Shawn, that was just what I needed to go on. I've now found several very similar examples:

http://www.metmuseum.org/art/collection/search/448385
Identical shape, except for the flat base.

http://collections.vam.ac.uk/item/O829/beaker-unknown/
Very similar shape but with flat base.

These are both described as 13th-14th century, Egypt/Syria.

However, I've not found any with a rounded foot like my example, or with similar crude gilding. In fact, the closest I've found in terms of decoration is this pitcher, which is described as 19th century!
