Make-do Goblet with Mining Scenes, Fine and Rare
Nuremberg, 1680 to 1700
An early superbly engraved masterpiece of glass blowing with history - SOLD

Antique Make-do Goblet with Mining Scenes, Nuremberg, 1680 to 1700, entire view

This early blown wineglass suffered the loss of its foot which was replaced with a silver substitute. The wine itself is a superb example of late seventeenth century blown and engraved glass from Nuremberg. The piece features three hollow knops each separated by three wafers, and a generous bowl engraved with open pit mining scenes. A coat of arms is engraved in the front and is believed to be the arms of one of the Counts of Mansfeld. The foot is hand hammered silver and bears the name Mansfeld and the date 1530. (Also, in tiny font, “A.E. 12”) The foot was likely made during the late 18th or early 19th century. Mansfeld Germany was noted for copper and silver mining for 800 years; Kupferschiefer was the principle mineral; the ore was reached via open mine shafts as depicted on the bowl. This 10.5-inch goblet was likely made to commemorate the successful mining endeavors of one of the Mansfeld families. Fine condition.
