Footnotes

  • Provenance:
    Krug Collection

    A similar goblet is in the James A de Rothschild Collection at Waddesdon Manor. In their catalogue of the Rothschild Collection (1977), pp.104-107 Robert Charleston and Michael Archer discuss many related examples and the question of whether all originally had covers. They reproduce a drawing of a vessel of related shape, without a cover, from the mid-16th century catalogue of the Colinet glassworks at Beauwelz, there described as 'Verres Coquilles'.
