Literature: Pineapple goblets were fashionable from the second half of the sixteenth century up to c.1640 in Germany. Although German in origin they can be seen in late sixteenth century paintings all over central Europe.
German silver marks. Pre 1888 antique German silver was based on different town mark symbols and the silver fineness was indicated in “loth” (12 loth = 750/1000, 13 loth = 875/1000, 15 loth = 937/1000). In 1888 the ‘crescent moon and crown’ marks were adopted together with the fineness of silver usually “800” = 800/1000. This system is still in use today.
This lovely drinking cup is in good condition. Good clear marks. The gilt interior is original and bright; there is a small amount of wear to the outside as you'd expect from an article of this age. Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
