About Rare pair of cups

Hans Caspar Gyger

The elegant pair of goblets made of gilded silver is identical in its execution and bears the maker’s mark of Hans Caspar Gyger (1609-1676).
The two cups are distinguished by their bell-shaped bowl, the lower half of which is embossed, featuring a chiseled vine decor and smoothly transitioning into a plain lip at the top. Both the curved foot and the stem once again incorporate the embossed motif of the bowl, giving the arrangement its balanced character.
