Baroque Munster Large Ball Footed Beaker

Postby legrandmogol » Sat Nov 21, 2020 10:06 am

I was very fortunate to come across a grouping of 3 old German cups. This cup I believe is from the city of Munster but I don't know the maker's mark. It is engraved with a blank cartouche and dated 1715 though I am unsure if the date is contemporaneous with the cup's origins. It is gilded around the cartouche, the rim, the interior, and the ball feet. It measures 5" tall x 4.5" wide with a diameter of 4.1". I believe the cartouche has always been blank as I don't see any evidence of erasure. If anyone can identify the marker I would be grateful.

Thank you for the info. I don't actually have that book but I keep it in my wishlist in case the price ever comes down.
