      Nuernberg Wedding Cup

    • Jenny Shank

      Traditional Nueremberg German Wedding Cup. The daughter of a wealthy man fell in love with a goldsmith, but her father had him imprisoned. When the father saw that his daughter was ill after her love was taken, the he told the goldsmith that if he could fashion a chalice from which two people could drink without spilling a drop, then he could have the daughter's hand. The cup is designed so that the bride can drink from the skirt while the groom swivels the bucket and drinks from it.
