A precarious goblet


Posted by admin | Posted in Mugs & Cups | Posted on 25-01-2014

This precarious but delightful goblet (is it the chalice from the palace, or the vessel with the pestle?) is formed from two pieces: a rolled-out flat circle formed into the cup, and then a columnar tube that’s been smushed at the bottom to form the base. Not surprisingly, it tipped over while I was standing at the checkout station at the thrift store. The woman running the place was very apologetic, and gave it to me for free. It stands about 9 inches tall and the cup is about 4 inches in diameter. Sadly, although this piece survived its tip-over at the checkout stand, it did not survive the Flood of 2008.
