Covered Goblet with Coat of Arms


Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description Entertaining was an important way to assert status in Europe during the 18th and 19th centuries—a time of increasing prosperity for the middle class. This goblet is decorated with a coat of arms, reminding the guest of the standing of his or her host. It also attests to the importance of sharing a drink for strengthening social ties The goblet is wheel engraved: a process in which a small abrasive wheel creates an incised design.
