Zwischengoldglas beaker


This is a flared beaker engraved with diamond point above a Zwischengoldglas (gold sandwich-glass) border of acanthus leaves. A coronet with five leaves and five jewels is represented above a monogram with the letters C K, all surrounded by scrolls, swags, foliage and a pair of eagles. The reverse, with further foliate design, bears an inscription in German extolling true friendship. On a ruby-coloured base, in the Zwischengoldglas technique, a motto surrounds two flaming hearts, one of them winged. This is a friendship glass for a count.
