Chalice


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description A well-known object in the Treasury of Saint Mark's Basilica in Venice was the inspiration for this chalice. The original chalice was carved from a semiprecious stone, gilded, and covered with pearls and enamel. The two vessels are similar in appearance, but the Salviati reproduction is made from blown glass; the pearls, gold embellishments, and enameled figures are painted on the surface.
