Question about stein/tankard from 1800's

I have come across this stein/tankard and was wondering if anyone could give me any information about it. It is marked on the bottom Rogers Smith and Co Conn in a circle with New Haven in the center of the circle and the number 68 underneath it. I'm assuming it is silverplate.

Is it inscribed "Pauline"? How big is it? It looks sort of like a baby cup.

It looks like a cup...perhaps originally went with a coffee set....or perhaps a punch set, depending on the size. Most likely silver plate. The design appears to have been influenced by the Eastlake movement.

I would call the incised decoration on it Anglo-Japanese or Anglo-Japanesque, which would place it in the 1880s.

I am also curious as to how large it is.
